    Hard to believe but the only thing protecting those NG transmission lines is a chain link fence, and from the angle that this car came from, a unlucky (or maybe lucky) electric pole. Had it not been for the pole, the car might have hit one of those pipes and then as Homer would say;

    This is a county road but heavily traveled in the morning and after work. Easily over 1500 cars, trucks, and school busses on average per day.

    Time, cost, or quality; pick any two but you can't have all three.

    I'd hate to be around if someone did hit those and rupture them!

    I'd throw more things away, but I'm afraid someone might want them...
