Tunnel vision...

Driver charged with 9 misdemeanor charges after he drives the full length of the Lincoln Tunnel in a rig 6 inches too over the height of the tunnel.

I recall watching a program about highway police in several countries and the things they encounter. A Montreal police officer recounted his pulling over... well, not pulling over, as the driver was (male, in case someone makes any assumptions) stopped at the entrance to the Ville Marie Autoroute (second longest tunnel in Canada, at 1500 m.). He walked up to the driver's window and asked if there was a problem. "No," said the driver, "My favorite song was on the radio and I didn't want to miss it...."
