No shortcuts on the road to success; but watch out for low bridges

Many already caught the irony.

I wonder:

  • Was the truck driver using GPS to plan the route?  Which system, so we can avoid it?
  • Stories in the past couple of days say robots should be doing all kinds of jobs, including driving cars and big trucks.  Can a robot do this?

Not to embarrass, but just for the record, does anyone know when and where this picture was taken?

Update: Smart and alert commenters (see below) tell us this is in Mamaroneck, New York, at the intersection of Mamaroneck Ave and Halstead Ave, where Mt. Pleasant Ave comes in. Look at the bridge of the Metro North trains, and it appears that bridge gets hit a lot.
