Railroad Bridge Again Proves More Powerful Than Truck

You’d think that drivers of high vehicles would heed the warning signs — or at least slow down, and see if they could possibly s-q-u-e-e-z-e underneath Westport’s two low railroad bridges.

But with stunning regularity, those bridges — on Compo Road South and Saugatuck Avenue — get struck.

Today it was the Compo Road overpass.

Susie Kowalsky — who took these photos — says, “I think they need a bigger sign.”

I think we need better drivers.
