I guess he thought, "well, let's make it fit !!"

A truck driver whose rig was 6 inches too tall for the Lincoln Tunnel drove its entire 1 1/2 -mile length early Thursday, peeling the trailer's roof back and ripping off ceiling tiles.

Flashing signs and officers using a loudspeaker warned the driver, and it was unclear why he didn't heed them, according to the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which operates the tunnel. The driver, from Texas, was charged with nine misdemeanor moving violations.
