A Mild Shock

A few days ago, I was at Baldock Train Station on the way to work, when there was this enormous bang, and the sound of bottles smashing.
Could only mean one thing. Someone had tried to drive a lorry under the bridge next to the station and got stuck.
Due to the lack of foresight and attention, a no of us had to swiftly call for taxis and there was a train delay at the station for up to an hour, whilst they tried to sort out whether the bridge was safe.
What irritates me is the lack of judgement shown by the lorry driver in question. As someone said to me who used to drive lorries, it's ideal to knock off six inches of the height of any bridge a lorry driver is considering going under, that way you can't go wrong.
But thankfully no one was injured and life swiftly returned to normal, and thank God for the bypass!

Lorries are the biggest menace on the roads in my opinion, I think they should be banned during peak periods.
