    Some collegues got late to work this morning being stuck on the M5
    Motorway/Tunnel. This is why.

    what the ! – you think he’d know that its up before he goes into the
    tunnel. ,

    What this video doesn’t show is the tipper body raising just before he went
    in the tunnel. It shows it on Ninemsn.

    All u Australian this is the moment when i have to say the truth, you have
    no idea on how you drives, stupid accidents all the time i’m not even
    surprised. no body drive 70 and involved in MVA lol

    Goddamn but there’s a lot of bullshit flying around in here. The driver
    should be vindicated to know the majority of people commenting are lucky to
    remember to draw breath.

    Shit happens people, and all the wild assumptions being made (and
    immediately assumed by the maker to be the absolute truth) just make you
    look like cunting sluzzers.

    No-one was injured, could have been FAR worse. If it had even slightly
    collapsed the entrance to the tunnel it would’ve taken far far longer out
    of your oh-so precious day.

    If anything this is just a clear indication that tippers need a
    buzzer/deadman switch to operate.

    Oh, and cry more. Wankers.

    just your typical boofheaded truck driver. Thick as 2 short planks and
    don’t give a stuff about other motorists.

    Don’t you think having the responsibility of driving such a huge vehicle
    means that you would have the common sense whether or not the truck is too
    tall to fit through a tunnel?

    I also dislike how comments no longer appear in my inbox. What the hell?
    It’s an inbox…

    You know, I could say that I don’t like Bob, but that would be a lie. Bob
    and his bravery has flooded out the viruses that took up the YouTube
    comment section and has made it better. Godspeed Bob. Godspeed.

    Maybe he was protesting the high toll rates.

    I wonder if his/her insurance will actually pay up on this since its
    obviously negligence .

    Thankfully it only looks like cosmetic damage, lighting, etc instead of

    I can see this video will go viral

    This guy was extremely lucky. This is the reason why most construction
    sites will insist that the tipper is right down before the truck moves off.
    There have been cases where a tipper has made contact with a bridge,
    causing the cab to pivot up and crush the driver.
    You would assume that he tripped the overheight vehicle warning lights and
    didn’t realise that it was his truck that had set them off.

    An Infra red light beam mounted at a suitable clearance height on tall
    poles located either side of a freeway could activate circuitry that
    controls warning lights when the beam is broken by a high load on a truck
    and flash bright lights to warn the driver the load is too high, warning
    them to not enter tunnels and take a different route above ground.

    I feel for the car next to him

    Worse than the stupidity of the driver, is the stupidity of every other
    driver who rubbernecks for the next SEVERAL HOURS, causing gridlock for FAR
    MORE TIME than it takes to actually fix this.
    It’s as if the toll for going on the M5 isn’t just a few dollars, it’s a
    piece of your brain, too.

    love how you cunts can’t handle some comments so you block the users from
    commenting on facebook. you’re a wussy bunch.

    Hope he destroyed the revenue raiser in the process.

    I thought the driver had said he dropped his glasses and must of hit a
    button while trying to pick them back up…if so, why does the truck not
    have an alarm system or some kind of beeping sound that plays while the
    tilt tray is in motion!!!!!

    Can someone get this video out of the bloody popular section! It’s not
    popular okay!
