approach angle clearance

You may need to petition the American Association of Transportation Engineers,or whoever creates the book which determines road and street construction.
Here in the Denton area you'd never be able to make a delivery without shredding the nose off the tractor.
Between the crown for runoff during torrential downpours,gutters,and driveway ramps,vehicles already designed with SAE specifications for approach,brake-over,and departure angles are being torn to pieces attempting to enter or leave delivery areas.
I'd hate to see that beautiful snout do a ground strike!
