Bob Mantler: How to stop truck drivers from damaging bridges
To the editor:
I have talked to truck drivers from all over the country for almost 40 years. What most people don’t know is that most of these people have never seen a bridge they can’t go under, as is the case in downtown Northampton.
That is no excuse for not reading signs, but these people from other parts of the world can go under every bridge they have ever seen. I don’t have an answer to the problem. Without putting 10-foot height detection signs with alarms on them, we will have to accept occasional additions to the mural account.
