What, in your opinion, is the most overlooked code?

IMHO, the one mostly ignored here is strapping of conduits by electricians. When it comes to John Q Public, it seems to be workspace.

Close race between these here in WV:

1) Box fill
2) Conduit fill (NM Cable especially)
3) Derating of bundled conductors
4) Proper cover for buried pipe or cable

Sorry I didn't quote the good book, it's in the truck and I'm feeling lazy...

This is impossible to narrow down to one or two, but these make my list

Lack of wirenuts on equipment ground splices

Equipment grounds not connected to boxes

Multiple wires on/in a terminal

Box fill

Working space/clearance

Working space/clearance (keep repeating this about 100 times)

Oh, so that's what the green screw is for (as applied to panelboards)

Grounded conductors used for grounding conductors.

Few things are harder to put up with than the annoyance of a good example.

Think this is the most overlooked of them all " a neat,safe and workman like manner" and one more is "panels and circuits not being makred properly"
