    Ha. I'm guessing the local lawyers weren't up on the finer points of Contitutional law, huh?



    So, now all local commuters need parade permits for those lines of cars every day?

    Funny how cultures differ. In France, they'd repave the roads by hand, at night and on weekends, to get a Tour stage to start or end in their town. Hell, they even sacrifice their daughters as...

    Now, there's a perfect plaintiff's case. Did the county settle quickly?

    Actually, the basic requirement is 16'. The lower 14' clearance is for secondary routes through urban areas.

    Yup. Take a look at the minimal damage to the load that took down this bridge:

    319154

    There was a pilot car, but it's not clear whether it was equipped with a "height pole" (as they refer to...

    No problem. And you're right. It's absolutely ridiculous that real clearances aren't known or communicated or verified in situations like this.

    Well, it wasn't clear to me, probably because Joey's thread is about what happened in that particular situation.

    As for the common passing-left-turning-traffic-on-the-right procedure, almost...

    That's just silly. Regardless of the legality of leaving the pavement or main traveled portion of the roadway, or crossing the fog line, neither of those situations is applicable to the situation...

    It will be very interesting. Note, however, that the permit paperwork repeatedly insists that clearance heights are not guaranteed. See here:

    Yes. Weaken the truss superstructure by hitting/bending/moving a few elements and the whole thing sags, pulling the ends of the section away from the piers. All fall down.

    It is what you think it is, of course. Jerks who think it's fun to intimidate you and might actually hurt you if they thought they could get away with it. All of us who have cycled for a long time...

    I guess we're looking at different photos or something. The bike lane I see is so bad even you ought to hate it, Bek.

    It was a permit trip. Washington DOT has the related paperwork on their website.

    The truck was preceded by a pilot car, presumably with a "height pole" since load height was a known issue.

    Well, it's pretty widely known. The last California DMV survey I remember (and could find) should give you a sense of the big picture, even though it's more than a decade out of date:

    Yup. And it's usually perfectly legal, including, probably, at the spot where Joey nearly got clobbered.

    I really like those strobes. Be careful out there.

    New Orleans is on my list of "urban treasures relentlessly screwed up by creepy and incompetent people" -- foreign (USACE) and domestic (long list). :(

    Yes. People should know better by now.

    How do they make these decisions, and who approves designs, in Nawlins, Joey? Do they have public meetings? Does anyone attend?

    Joey, ya gotta change behavior there, now. Passing on the right just got a lot more dangerous. Time to start moving left while approaching that location.

    No. They won't, for the most part, except where it's safe to do so. Certainly very few will (perhaps partially) leave the lane to pass you on the left, approaching an intersection, and then turn...

    Yup. It probably matters where you go to observe, of course, but I noticed quite a bit of obvious struggling and several people who were being re-tested, last time I was in DMV, 2-3 years ago.
