There really are some plonkers on the road, aren't there? I might be a humble van driver, not a rocket scientist, but compared to some of the numpties out there I'm the Albert Einstein of the nation's roads.
I mean, if it's not someone following their GPS so that their van plummets from a pier or gets squeezed between two buildings in an alleyway, it's some bloke crashing into a lamp-post as he compares a lingerie model on a billboard to his oversized wife at home.
For example, I read this week about a bloke who'd bought himself a brand new van – he'd just got the motor insurance for it and everything – only to get it wedged tight under a bridge.
This isn't the first time this year that such an incident has happened. I mean, can't people read the signs. They're there, loud and clear: Warning! Low Bridge.
Network Rail seemed pretty peeved about this latest incident. After all, it's meant to be their job to delay the trains, not some van driver's from Cambridgeshire. "Bridge strikes can be extremely disruptive for both road and rail users," said a spokesperson.
"They lead to delays on the roads and can lead to speed restrictions and sometimes even closure of the railway while the damage is assessed, causing disruption for potentially thousands of rail passengers.
"Drivers should know the height of their vehicle and this bridge is clearly marked. We would urge people to drive with care and consideration to avoid these incidents occurring."
