A truck dilemma

Situation puzzles (sometimes called lateral thinking puzzles) are ones where you need to ask lots of yes or no questions to figure out what happened in the situation. These are good puzzles for groups where one person knows the puzzle and answers the questions.

A truck approaches a low railroad trestle and stops. The driver sees that his truck is one inch higher than the height of the underpass. This is the only road going to his destination. What can he do to get through the underpass?


Answer

He can let out enough air from his tires to allow him to pass through the underpass. Then on the other side of the underpass he can add air back into the tires.
