Here’s a hot tip for you motor-car piloters out there: that big window right above the steering-direction torus is a fantastic way to see what kinds of things you’re about to drive into! I just wish I had a chance to give this hot tip to this Audi driver on the Casco Bay Bridge in Portland, Maine, before this happened:

To be fair, it’s easy to see how the driver would have missed that gigantic, red-and-white striped gate coming down, unobscured, with lights on it, right before the location of a drawbridge that’s clearly marked.

Watch the road, dummy. If that bridge was up this would be a much more exciting story for us and a much worse day for you.
