What’s That Clearance Again?

The backwards writing on the side of the truck was a small puzzle. Why would the numbers — and a series of vertical letters — be written backwards? Then I actually read them and it immediately became apparent: “15′ 1″ HIGH.” It’s the truck’s clearance, written so the driver or his partner can read it on the side view mirror. Any time they come upon a posted Low Clearance sign they can easily compare it to the truck’s requirements. Rather clever actually.

  1. Love the guy’s expression Mark. Would not have noticed the backwards writing by myself. I thought togs were supposed to notice everything.

  2. It looks like he is going to get lifted off of his feet 🙂

  3. Awesome photography at work here Mark! Love the shallow depth of focus, you really brought our eye right to the best part of the shot there!

  4. Makes sense!

  5. Not to be picky, but its 12′ 1″ reversed…

    1. Thank you, Mike. I can’t believe I messed that up. I even thought that 15 feet was awfully high. 12 makes much more sense, and more importantly, is actually correct.
