221 cargo vehicles got stuck in the capital last year.

Every two days, a truck gets stuck in one of São Paulo's viaducts or tunnels. A total of 221 cargo vehicles got stuck in the capital last year, as they were taller than the structures under which they tried to go through. Mathematically, 0.6 per day, or 1.2 every two days.

The data is from CET (Companhia de Engenharia de Tráfego, in English, Traffic Engineering Company), which lists the three locations with the most occurrences of this type: 23 de Maio Avenue under the General Euclides Figueiredo viaduct, in Ibirapuera (south area), which has a height of 4.10 meters, the Alcântara Machado avenue under the Bresser viaduct (east area), with 4 meters, and the Jânio Quadros tunnel, with 3.5 meters.
