| Although, I *totally* understand the importance of large vehicle tracking and the special needs they have (weight restrictions, high restrictions, etc) the data implementation is something we're still investigating. |
Drivers do need to use common sense and not rely on software for everything. Many similar stories like this have been published with navigation solutions that don't provide height restrictions - it would be scary to think how many drivers would find themselves in a crunch if S&T provided this data. We would obviously need to find a reliable source (one of the big hurdles) and we would have to trust the data's accuracy without having the ability to test it. What if we only had 50% coverage for height restrictions? How would the driver know if the data is missing or if no height restriction is in the database for that route? Good discussion questions. Any truckers out there? What do you currently use to learn of ht/wt restrictions?
