  2. It wernt me I tell ya...………..I was framed...………...by Bulkie, da six ft. 3.5 in. 258lb. wabbit...………………………..
  3. Another thought that comes to mind, if these bridges are in such poor condition how come there is no weight restictions???????????? Last year I recall seeing 8 or maybe 9 military vehicles towing I believe were armored self propelled guns of some sort (maybe tanks) travelling off cape one right after the other in convoy...…..
  4. You are correct Joe, the bridges get shut down because the winds blow the vehicles around, not the bridge. Personally I have driven trucks including tractor trailer over both bridge and you can feel the effects of even a 10mph breeze...…………...
  5. That was their downfall...………………………..
  6. Right you are, remember what happened when the Polish came in...………………….
  7. This whole affair reeks of political BS...…..These bridges are what are called riveted truss suspension bridges, very few welded joints. The riveted construction is very easy to inspect as there are no sealed joints (as in welded) and in the event of a failing part all that has to be done is cut the rivets and replace the part with new rivets. These structures were built with '30s and '40s cars in mind, a whole lot bigger and heavier than the plastic vehicles of today. As brad said above, the problem is not the bridges, but the roads leading to and from them...…………. My opinions only...………..
  8. Your probably right there, but as far as federal projects go I think the Mexico wall is top priority and the Canadian wall is second...…………………..
  9. Per bridge...………..and that's after how many billions in environmental and other studies...………..as far as the taxpayer is concerned and common sense is concerned, it's far more cost effective to repair them...…………..
  10. We have to remember that the State inspection program is geared to getting the unsafe and pollouting vehicles of the road or getting them fixed...……….bitch as you may, it's for everyone's good.
  11. How is that skinney old scarecrow doin, haven't seen him in a couple of years...…………….
  12. Tappen Zee @ 4 B and according to the CC Times they are talking 1 B for two bridges??????????? May be are going to use the scrap wood from the Sandwich board walk...…………...

  15. I don't know if you missed what I was referring to,, duplicate plates means the same number and they have to be custom made, whereas replacement plate are totally different numbers and you also get a new registration certificate
