Second in two days, lovely photo in the indo yesterday of one.

Hauliers excuse was classic:

There's plenty of room for that truck, its not my fault if they put extra tar on the road, or chippings. (parahrasing here) thus reducing the clearance.

And, theres a dip there that makes the trailers bounce.

And of course its not as if IE don't understate the clearance anyway by a fraction to avoid this
