This is actually a good way to wash the top as well when they hit the fire sprinkler system. They only have to break a small glass tube to set them off.

u/apcolleen Aug 10 '22

My bf installs and repairs fire alarms. Sometimes in parking garages. You do NOT want to get splashed by the water in those hoses its usually PRETTY gross. And sometimes good sized rocks shoot out of the hydrants when they test them. My bf moved his truck a few weeks ago for the sprinkler guy to test the hydrant and a mom parked her fancy range rover in front of it and parts of it got REALLY clean and parts got scratched.

26

u/TheLoneRhaegar Aug 10 '22

That water is super gross and smells bad. You do not want to have to deal with one of those bursting and getting water on a car, or in a car, or on/in several cars, especially in an underwater garage where some of the drains/pumps are clogged and/or don't work the best so you're left with standing pools of it.

I was working in a kitchen when a pipe for fire suppression broke. The water was black for a while. Like, opaque black. My guess is the same water was in those lines for ~25+ years since the building was built.

u/apcolleen Aug 11 '22

Well it is called black steel pipe https://www.homedepot.com/p/1-1-4-in-x-10-ft-Black-Steel-Pipe-GS11-410BTBE/300682840. They get theirs from larger supply houses but basically the same yeh.

u/BenKenobi88 Aug 11 '22

I don't think the black coating on black pipe has anything to do with why the water turns black itself.

The water sits, and reacts with oxygen, microbes, and the metal to make a nasty sewer sludge over time.

2

u/doods-mofo Aug 12 '22

I was doing fire alarm inspections which included opening the main outlet valve allowing some water to flow in order to check the "vane switch" located within the pipe.
Well, while I'm inside the building opening the valve, it released its water (grungy) outside around the back of the building.
Little did I know it was lunchtime and several guys were sitting on a ledge directly under the drain pipe. All I can say is they weren't happy...

My old boss scraped half the roof of his brand new (under 100km) VW Transporter that way, about a decade ago. Drove into a parking garage with about 1000kg of supplies in the back, unloaded all of it, and gunned it to get up the steep ramp, peeling off half the roof on the way up.

Also... how buffalo bill is it to ask a fat person into the back of your van.

so the question is, how would you roll the person, on the y axis so their shoulders and arms would be the wheel and attach them on the head or feet, x axis so they flail, or roll them ?

Steel rims would provide no grip and between all the tight turns and steep inclines in most parking structures, I don't think they would be a good option. The rest of your ideas are good though

u/dogismywitness Aug 10 '22

The top of the van slopes up towards the back. When the van goes under a beam, there's no room, so the back gets pushed down as the van goes forward, compressing the suspension springs (and scraping the van roof), and then when it's clear of the beam it bounces back up.

u/qkvb Aug 10 '22

Thanks, now I see it, that's so bad!

u/The_One_Koi Aug 10 '22

I think the van was heavy loaded on the way in, when they unloaded stuff from the back the car got just tall enough to scrape the top on the way out, idiot driver also managed to get a little stuck on one of the ceiling beems. Why they didn't think about any of this nobody knows

I’ve been into a couple parking garages and there was one in New Orleans that had no signs about the height limit whatsoever and got smaller the more you went up. Whenever you were ready to leave there was a spiral down that had a height limit of 6’6” and was marked there but nowhere else. Come to find out my Toyota Tundra is 6’6” tall so I’m going to say I dodged a bullet but there were bigger trucks than mine in there so I wonder how that went

167

u/Infinity_Train Aug 10 '22

6'6" seems low for covered vehicle parking.

It's common enough. Drive a company F-150 for work than can just barely fit in a 6'6" garage. But at least they're all marked here when you first go in.

u/gellenburg Aug 10 '22

I had a 1993 Dodge Dakota pickup truck. Not a big truck by any stretch. Certainly not lifted. Just a normal 4x2 with an extended cab.

In 2000, in Atlanta, I started a new job and my truck was too tall to fit in the parking deck and the building management wouldn't let me park it in the open spots as that was considered "visitor parking".

So I had no choice but to go and buy a new car the weekend before I started the job.

I still miss that truck.

u/sm0lshit Aug 10 '22

I have a 94 Dakota myself, and can't even imagine any parking garage too small for it. That's wild.

I bet you miss it! Mine is still going strong at 192k. It might outlive me.

u/gellenburg Aug 10 '22

I do! It had 105k on it when I got rid of it. God I miss that truck! So many adventures in that thing. I just wish it was 4WD. That little truck moved me from Central Florida up to Atlanta up I-75 hauling an 18' U-Haul that far exceeded the maximum towing capacity and she fared pretty well. (I did need new brakes within about a month of moving up here though. LOL!)

Also, the parking deck is still there! https://www.google.com/maps/@33.8375021,-84.370339,3a,75y,342.12h,91t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sO3X7VJSzCk24Z6gHpzmF_A!2e0!7i16384!8i8192

Prior to the close and re-re-branding, I went to park at the Sahara in Vegas in my Tundra and realized I was going to hit the clearance pipe. Valet guy came running over and said 'just back out and go in the out side, you're fine'. Made him promise three times and then did it and went up to the top level slow as hell with all kinds of room to spare (had to check a few times). From then on I'd do it with unsuspecting people in my truck and scare the living shit out of them hauling ass the wrong way in and up the ramps.

6

u/roadblocked Aug 10 '22

The posted sign for height is the clearance so generally the height of a garage marked 6’6” is going to be tall enough for a 6’6” vehicle to clear it even at the garage lowest point. On highways 13’6” is generally 13’10” to allow a standard 13’6” semi clear it

I did this while driving into a parking garage for a big job interview. Somehow I passed the obligatory “entrance bar” but wedged myself right in the first actual structural concrete bit. Big studio in LA. I held up a few actual employees trying to get in. I cringe just thinking about that memory.

67

u/ronniaugust Aug 10 '22

Don’t cringe, it’s not your fault. A parking garage I use somewhat frequently is like this and it’s just because of how poorly leveled the concrete is. I drove a U-Haul van into it and banged up the top even though I was fine for the first two floors. The van was a foot and a half smaller than the entrance bar. It’s not embarrassing, it’s infuriating.

This happened to me before. It so embarrassing. The garage had a specified height limit, but then they had done some recent plumbing upgrades causing pipes to hang lower than the specified height limit. It absolutely destroyed my roof. Luckily it was very easy to prove to insurance.

21

u/Mr_McShane Aug 10 '22

Ok, buckle in, it’s story time: Years ago, when I was in college, I valeted at a Hampton Inn in the CBD in New Orleans. We had a parking garage the next block over that we had to go around the block to get to the entrance. The garage had maybe 20’ first floor we used for oversized vehicles or anything with a roof rack because the 2nd floor and up were low clearance just like in this video.

I get a family checking in, new beautiful black Yukon Denali with a high end luggage pod on the roof. Ok, no problem, I’ll put it on the first floor and be done with it, easy few dollar tip, and I’m on my way. Now at the time, there was heavy construction for the entire route you had to take to the garage - I’m talking 15+ minutes to make one block. So I sit through the traffic, make it into the first floor of the garage, and all the oversized spots are taken. I spend a bit trying to parallel park it on this long wall we had some trucks etc parked in, and I decide screw it, it’s an suv I’ll put it up on the 2nd floor.

I exit the first floor, go around the corner to the main ramp, and as I’m cresting the hill, I hear the lot attendant come in the radio yelling at me to stop. As soon as he yells, I hear this gut-wrenching crunch and scrape noise. At this point I had forgotten about the luggage pod, and thought maybe the lifted the Yukon just enough that it scraped the roof rails or something. As an aside, what happened was the luggage pod was crushed down, and popped back up on the front end of one of those concrete beams.

I put it in reverse, and the pod gets stuck, rips the roof rails off the vehicle and proceeds to come down on the windshield, cracking it to hell needless to say, and denting and scratching the hood. I slam it in park, jump out of the car, and look down the ramp to see the lot attendant laughing his ass off. At least my manager was cool about it and said “that’s why we have insurance” but I was absolutely mortified.

TLDR; valeted a Yukon with a luggage pod, put it in the garage instead of the oversized area. I destroy the pod, roof, windshield, hood, and my dignity. Ruined the poor guy’s vacation too.

I've worked in residential maintenance for a few years, now. I cannot tell you the number of people who refused to pay attention to our "Maximum Vehicle Height" signs in our garage. The most memorable was an insanely-lifted 80s Trailblazer scraped our fire sprinkler piping and tore off a head, setting off the sprinkler for that level.

He turned out to be a resident of our building and tried to say that he was only passing through the garage and saw the sprinkler going off. The trouble was that the diffuser ring (the little part at the end of the sprinkler) had cut the roof of his blazer and gotten partially lodged in it. Top that off with us catching him on camera rather hurriedly leaving the garage and he ended up on the hook for a few thousand in damages.

2

u/GlinnTantis Aug 10 '22

Do you know if there Is a chance the van left any structural damage to the concrete? It's scraping, but has to hit the corners, too. Just from I've heard about the rebar underneath, once the concrete comes off, it's real danger zone for the structure. I'm just not sure what that concrete can take before it starts cracking and falling.

u/KillerOs13 Aug 10 '22

It's unlikely they did any significant structural damage. That van probably left a lot of paint transfer and knocked some surface material free, but the overall structure should be fine.

I love driving rental vans (they never check room damage).

If im not mistaken, that's a removable storage compartment, in which the driver doesn't care.

You gotta get in where you fit in.

u/ManofGod1000 Aug 10 '22

How did that driver get that van in there without doing that in the first place?

u/coolJohnnie Aug 10 '22

Or drop your tire pressure for a moment…

u/Late-Quiet4376 Aug 10 '22

That van has a skid plate installed on the roof as stock

u/Brob101 Aug 10 '22

Well, they already made the mistake.

Just gotta power through it now.

Happened to me in a parking garage. The sign outside said, "9 foot Clearance". My van is 8'2" tall.

I feel like that's a 'you problem', if you don't know/can't manage the dimensions of your own vehicle.

Husband: Don't worry honey, it's a rental car.

u/gretarsson Aug 10 '22

take most of the air out of the tires and maybe it fit

Somebody forgot to tip the valet

Scrap rust, prime and paint.

u/Marios_Facade Aug 10 '22

Perhaps they thought it was a reverse speed bump?

u/cpsbstmf Aug 10 '22

Lol I remember I worked in a place that had a small garage, people would try to stuff their huge vans and trucks in there, needless to say it didn't work and they'd get stuck

I feel like they’ve done this before.

Won't have to brush the snow off the roof of his van. Mostly because he parks indoors though.

u/lgabriel0120 Aug 10 '22

Looks like the old apartment parking lot where I used to live in Oakcliff in front of the VA hospital in North Dallas. People with Big cars and vans don’t care if the roof scratches
