Someone stole a truck and wanted to cross the border with it,there is a (one way) tunnel as a short way to the border.
As he was 150 yards away from the tunnel he parked a side because he noticed that there was no traffic sign indicating the height of the tunnel ,moreover he knows nothing about the height of the truck.
If he take a risk and drive,the truck may stuck if the tunnel is too low( he can not drive backwards).
How can he make a rough estimation to know whether this truck can pass through that tunnel or not?
Note : he didn`t have any measuring tools.
( he smoke marlboro...)

Solow and Dej Mar make the assumption that the 150 yards is correct.

The 150 yards cited is not just a simple assumption, but a given.
