Oh good grief! The millions of dollars of damage there... One would think they might devise a trigger/laser/electric eye or some sort of device a half block away that could set off a whole bunch of flashing red lights and stop just a few of those messes.

Too much stupid "It's not my problem" going around.

Edit: reading the web site FAQ:

Why don't they fix it?
Depends on who "they" are and on what "fix" means.
...There is an "overheight when flashing" sign with flashing lights that are triggered by vehicles that are too tall.

Why are they using yellow flashing lights?
Warning lights have to be yellow according to the NC traffic laws.

How much would it take to install a bunch of red flashing lights right at the bridge???
