I love that channel, its a little slower now that they raised the bridge, but its still too low for many tall vehicles so still has its moments...lol

I think its 12'4" now height wise, so the wrecks are not as spectacular but still damaging, shows how many drivers don't pay attention and how many who rent trucks don't understand the height of the vehicle....

And roof damage is not generally covered by the insurance on these rental trucks, so renters are liable for it.

This was what I always wanted to do as a kid....Probably good it didn't work out in the end though, but seems like a cool job.

But you still have to cope with crazy drivers who think they can cross the lines !!

The Light Rail in Houston is a great way to get around town and I always thought it was a cool job for the drivers until one day we were riding on one and a car crossed in front.. No one was hurt but it certainly felt like we were going to tip over! Scary.

Compulsory no, but it certainly increases street cred, so long as one is careful with the name.

Snowy - as he is known in the Anglosphere - is Bobby in Flemish, and Milou in French.

I didn't know about Bobby but I knew about Milou from my wife. I don't remember asking her what Captain Haddock's name was.
