    i say revoke the CDL of both brain dead drivers

    the first moron, should be made to pay for NEW bridge, never mind repairing the older one.

    the second driver should be made to go to burger flipping school

    Lemme guess: the dumb@$$ that went over the bridge was following his GPS.

    The park side was crimped off, not the service side.

    It goes to show that even when they’re serious Iowa DOT can crack jokes-typically at the violators expense!

    I'm tired of the harassment around here. I vice-gripped the brake line so my truck could roll across the bridge easier. You rookies should learn to TAKE NOTES.

    Not MY fault they don't know how to clearly mark low bridges. Idiots.

    If I have a leaking brake chamber I take the line off, put a dime in the fitting and reconnect... Stops leak. Then get repaired at next stop.

    Vice grips are clearly on the line supplying the park side of the chamber. Look at the picture.

    If they're going to make a big deal about it they should at least get their facts straight. Those vice grips aren't affecting the service brakes.
