I watched a similar incident many years ago in Thermopolis, WY. If you've ever been to the park just outside of town (I forget the name), there is an underpass about the same height. This man stopped, looked at the sign, backed up some (I guess to get a run at it) and pushed his A/C unit back on the inclined roof about 2', which was enough to get under the RR bridge. He never stopped to find out what happened, just continued on to the park. Now that was determination, or a sign of intelligence.
To quote Jeff Foxworthy, "here's your sign".

On our rig, the spotlight above the front cap is the highest point. It's over 13'.

Even after the warning Lights were tripped by a sensor, he still doesn't see the problem... My favorite part is the woman walking along like this happens under this bridge everyday... LOL

Good thing that bridge wasn't 3" lower....

cheers
