That's the whole point of posting height limits on overpasses so that some stupid moron won't drive his over the height restriction into it.

Can anyone say poor helpless animals that are suffering needlessly before they are brutalized at the slaughterhouse?

Re-open local slaughter houses and prevent the unneccesary traveling.
