Where was this?

I'm thinking that if this is a street that is wide enough for two cars to go by it shouldn't be a problem. Just put a decorated border around it and plant some flowers.

Is this a steel-reinforced concrete pole?

Someone's got to ask: Did they build the road around the pole or put the pole in the middle of the road?

It looks very much like a road under construction, so I'd bet on the former, but the power lines could be new.

Maybe they're going to put up some traffic signals in the center of the road and figured this would make it easy to get power....

Love that warning sign TG!

ThinkGood's sign may seem a little silly, but there are a few sailboat masts out there...

Our EMS has to deal with a situation like this constantly here. POCO placed a pole containing a transformer bank in the middle of an emergency drive behind a nursing home. This drive is the only access to an emergency entrance to the home. We have to drive on the sidewalk in order to reach the entrance. The nursing home has tried repeatedly to deal with the POCO on this, with no luck. The bad thing is, the driveway was there first - the construction for the gutters and sidewalks came first, then the POCO set the pole before the driveway itself was poured. Even with the pole in the driveway, moving it three or four feet from dead center would have been much better.

After the nursing home found that they couldn't get anywhere with the POCO, they had the sidewalk "ramped" on one side of the driveway, allowing us to drive on it without jostling the patient so badly.

I know nothing about the picture. It came in the e-mail.

Mike,
that's really bad of the PoCo!
