There are many signs near the East 61st Street stretch of the FDR Drive saying that the height restriction is 9 feet 6 inches. But some drivers are too in the moment to pay attention. Lee Stetson noticed this victim parked on East 61st Street and First Avenue.

In 2004, a bus that was over 13 feet tall hit the overpass at East 61st Street. Some passengers were injured but luckily no one was killed.
