Runaway truck ramp

Technically, this isn't Chattanooga but it's in the vicinity. We took a trip to Nashville recently to look at a university my son is hoping to attend and I took this picture on the drive back home. In order to get to Nashville you have to travel over Monteagle (the southern part of the Cumberloand plateau). The highway has a 6 percent grade and is a major trucking route. There are signs warning truckers and suggesting they keep their speed to 25 miles per hour. Just in case, they have several of these "runaway truck ramps".

We have some of these 'ramps' between Monaco an Nice. They frighten the hell out of me!
Today I'm running the funny caption of the week competition over at Sainte Maxime DP.
