    Default lift gone wrong

    I caught these pics on my commute a few years back. Not really sure what was going on to cause the tippage. The project was an overpass on hwy 26 at the Sylvan exit in Portland, OR. These guys were having a BAD DAY!

    In the third pic I think they just need a little more air in the tire & all will be good.

    The left rear rim may be a wee bit square as well.

    Have you ever seen the little signs that say:

    "A lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part"

    In this case, a failure to plan for contingency was a success in discrediting little signs.

    Default Cna you say STRESS!

    It would be interesting to have electrodes hooked up to the people involved just to measure up the vitals and gauge their stress levels.Guaranteed off the scale,Frank

    I'm pretty sure that was NHRA's fault.

    The heart rate and blood pressure of the guy operating the forklift was OFF THE CHARTS to be sure.
