That's blogger Dave Statter's name for the low bridge in Durham that infrequently decapitates unsuspecting tall trucks. Check out the latest and most spectacular video to date from Jurgen Henn, who runs the cameras (now plural!) that capture the drivers who ignore the big yellow sign reading 11 feet 8 inches. His website is appropriately named 11foot8.com. And while we're at Brightleaf Square, let's put in a plug for Satisfaction Restaurant and Bar, site of the best pizza in the Triangle. Mr. & Mrs. Blogger make the drive there at least once a month.

Heres your sign!

Maybe they need to make the height limit a lot lower, like 8” or so, and then it would be more obvious that trucks won’t get under it.

DANG!! You know his insurance company just increased his rates!
