    Perhaps the driver could have deflated the front tires to raise the back of the truck slightly? o.0

    It's so refreshing to see a package car that is stuck not because of snow.

    I'm Thinking this should be a permanent
    Looks like there is no shoulder to park on and a pretty busy road with high enough speed limit to create bad problems. Having been hit while parked by a kid playing with his radio years ago, I'm very mindful of getting out of traffic lanes when I can do so safely.
    Sure don't miss those bigger trucks! And I love the high rear ends on today's p700!

    They should have just stopped traffic and pushed him back words.

    My late partner and I extracted a P12 from a driveway like that with a floor jack and lumber. Driver's excuse was that they didn't have hills where he came from.

    I've also been hit while parked on a narrow shoulder. It was no fun at all. I look to get completely off the street now.

    Brownslave688 You want a toe? I can get you a toe.

    I got stuck like this once. Even had a sup with me.

    Not in a resi drive though.

    I saw a truck with a boat and trailer get stuck like this once, with the tongue of the trailer and hitch embedded in the road, no fun that day.

    If you watch the video you can see that it's not a 10 foot resi driveway, but rather a business parking lot. Probably just a new guy who didnt know about dips like that and bottoming out

    I had one that had a trailer hitch on it, and I have several areas, where I have to approach sideways, I told them take it off or give me a different truck. These long trucks have problems with areas like this.

    I feel sorry for that driver. Who ever designed the slope of that driveway should be fired.
