To The Editor:

Reading the paper about a solution or remedy to keep trucks from hitting the underpass, why not go “simple” and “sure?”

Put up a “half goal post” across Inman Street about a block before the underpass. Then, if the truck driver has ignored all the previous signs and warnings on Inman leading to the underpass, and his truck is too high, he will hit and probably break the post.

But this will make him very aware that he is about to hit something much larger.

This would cost about $70 instead of $70,000, and would be a REAL deterrent and a sure stopper.
