Another truck storrowed

The bridges of the river roads (and Dorchester) put a few more notches in their support beams this year as truck drivers continued to either drive into them or had to make an ignominious reverse drive of shame after narrowly avoiding a haircut caused by not paying attention to those "CARS ONLY" signs: Read more.
