This is the responsibility of the driver (speaking as one who's held a commercial license and driven a few trucks). It's disturbing how often it happens, that a driver either doesn't know how high their truck is or doesn't read the signs and put two and two (or 10'11" and 11'6") together. I have yet to hear of any incidents where a truck hit a bridge because the signage was inadequate.

For Pete's sake. Stop with the forced fluoridation of the public. I don't know if it's good or bad, but it's in most toothpastes and can easily be left to the consumer to decide. The whole fluoridation issue begs for someone to follow the money.

Sometimes I think this city is a 60 Minutes story waiting to happen. Or maybe This American Life should do a follow-up.

Having some experience with this, kids and the internet, I emphasize, and emphasize, and remind, and remind, beginning before internet access is allowed, that:
#1. You never can be sure who you're communicating with on the internet. It doesn't matter how long you've been chatting, how many pictures have been exchanged, etc.
#2, because of #1, you never give out personally identifiable information. Never.
Another rule I try to instill is that whatever you put out there, is out there forever. You have no control over that.
With all that you should be allowed to see what they're up to. How you do that is a personal decision as a parent but if you instill distrust, expect they will give you a reason to. Learn what apps they using. Learn how to enforce privacy rules on their accounts. Talk with them over dinner or in the car, or whenever about what they're seeing out there, in a non-judgmental way.

A most excellent letter, Mr. Bertsch. Care to start a local newspaper who might also ask these questions?

I don't see "educators" listed here. I do see administrators. Same concern applies though.
