What were they thinking. LOL!
looks shopped...and I don't think the mods are going to take to kindly to the
It's not, it's on the news today. I think Doc Brown from this board might be able to testify, he lives there.
I am going to wager a guess here and say they went from a one lane country style gravel road and it was later widened to two lanes and paved.
No idea why they did not move the utility pole.
Which one pisses off that homeowner more, the one in his front yard or the middle of the street?
Sorry, I'm in Waterville. My friend sent me a link to an article about it.
That pole looks pretty drunk to me.
It does look shopped
"Maudite, j'ai besoin de fil! Tabernaque, assez bon."
HydroQuebec needs to teach its poles not to play in traffic, the roads in Quebec are enough of a deathtrap as it is.
I believe in Off-pole. Haters need to step off. Off-pole is the way of the future. He is change, and the sheer will of spiral energy flowing through all of our collective veins. Don't reject Off-pole... embrace it!!!
Good job, Quebec.
Here is another link.

Notice how the car and the truck are on the wrong side of the road... They must be from England or something.
According to the article, it's in Johnville, a township of Sherbrooke. Sounds about right.
wow... that's just stupid
I know Bell and Hydro are a pain to work with but still... someone dropped the ball with MTQ (Transportation ministry)
I like how the pole is right in the lane, as opposed to being in the center of the yellow solid lines. It's dangerous as is, but if they get too close, I could see people losing their mirrors (or worse).
It would have been so easy to buy 3ft of the neighbors property (which im sure they would sell to avoid the accidents that will no doubt ensue) , extend the lane over, and build a center island.
Thank God I live in Ontario.
I used to see this once in a while where I used to live, mostly while traveling through areas that essentially expanded into or from small towns. Stupid as hell? Of course, but definitely not something new.
This is why you need good people reviewing your plans and construction inspection personnel that have teeth to get things done. Had that been on a job of mine I would have found someone else to move the pole and backcharge the pole owners for the cost and time lost.
