Found this in a bank parking lot, in a parking space!.. Something along the lines of "subject to damage" seems to come to mind!

Here where we get snow that would be nicely cut off flush with the asphalt. [Linked Image]

Looks new judging from the patch job/

What where they thinking?

That is really a brainless act! They do not deserve to get paid for this kind of work.

They weren't!

Piping up that concrete pedestal that's right there would have been better than that target, but even then it seems like these things are notorious for getting destroyed:

What would have been a good solution if you needed a receptacle in a parking lot?

A good way?

How about snaking some new wires into the pole base along with the existing light feed.

Or as John has said pipe up the side of the base, if I had to do that it would certainly be done with schedule 80 RMC and a lot of high quality supports.

Good Lord! Mike reminded me of something, this parking lot DOES flood if it rains for more than a day or so! [Linked Image]
