The days of being entertained by a constant stream of trucks getting stuck under a low bridge, affectionately name “The Can Opener” in Durham, NC are coming to an end.
After years of trying different tactics, the city’s engineers implemented a traffic light which is triggered by over-height vehicles. Signs then direct the driver to an alternate route. While the light has not completely eradicated the problem, it has put a serious dent in our entertainment. For old time’s sake, above is a video compilation of the Can Opener in action.
