If he'd had his seatbelt on, we wouldn't be discussing this. I hope they wrote him a ticket(assuming seatbelts are required in MO).

stamcon,
What type of wires are those, that run perpendicular to the wire(s), that the guy is holding?.
Are they HV lines?, as they seem a lot thinner than the phone lines.
Just wondering. [Linked Image]

There are so many wires I would have to think primary and secondary of ? voltage. It's hard to determine their distances relative to each other.

If you get the no-linking-directly-to-images error message, you can go to:

Scroll down to OTHER POLES, photo #14, "Insulator overload, late 50's shot."
