    When the transport driver misses the low-clearance sign

    He'll peel back the top half of your new CR-V.

    Still has the window sticker on it...

    To me that looks a lot more like he ran under the back of the HGV in front of him. No way is there a steel railway bridge with a clearance of about fifteen to twenty inches.

    It was on the upper deck of a car transporter.

    That could make quite a difference to my thinking, Dave. I was thinking delivery driver not transport driver.

    In the U.S. used car dealers use a lot of delivery drivers. New cars are delivered by members of the teamsters union. Two reasons for that, one, it's contractual and two, car companies don't want a couple of hundred to a couple of thousand miles on the "new" cars sitting on the lots.
