    This would work very well with the gaviral box truck or any tall truck.

    Someone can make a train trestle bridge and have it have the protector beam in the front of it so that any truck that is too tall will hit it.

    Not a bad idea, because I have always wanted to banana-peel the truck. This would fit on East Coast quite well.

    Hmmm... It would definately be possible, but here is the issue;
    Getting the height to be exact, and what vehicles may take advantage of this static object.
    If I ever figure out what to do in Google Sketchup or how the hell to use Blender properly, this would be something I could try.
    But for now, Its an idea out there for people to work with.

    It's really not that hard. Just place it so that it's slightly shorter than the top of the H-series box.

    Well, Problem solved.
    But the 11'8'' bridge is actually for trains, so technically it would have to be remodeled to be a train track instead of a road.

    Does it really matter that the bridge is for trains? I mean, anything of the right height will work.

    If you want to be accurate like the OP was thinking, Then it would need to be remodeled.
    Otherwise... The issue is already solved and I may be into the idea of incorporating it into my current map project(Foothill mines, Working on V3, V2 is currently up and running. Go check it out.)

    My map project below. I like the idea of adding a lowered bridge, so its something I could do in my map;

    I think 11' 8" was just an example.

    There are low bridges across the globe. Any bridge will do!

    Happens in the UK; this truck has a bent chassis as a result and that was 14' 8"

    Even a brick bridge like this takes a truck hitting it

    I just use the curve of the loop on the grid map but its not the same

    I'm working on a can opener bridge on my map. Currently it only has a 1/10 chance of peeling trucks, but when I release V4 of my map it should work as intended.
