* You need to conduct a FIXING FIBER DRILL and some training for
BACKHOE and DRILL/BORING machine operators instead ;-)

Some organization needs to figure out how to have these vehicles
or machines NOT cut fibre. Geeze it's not like these people have
never seen a "Call xxxxx before digging" sign before. Who makes
sure these companies know where not to DIG or DRILL or BORE????
What's their professional certification organization? (union?)

Can we give them a free FIBER and CABLE map somehow? How about
a free subscription to "Don't Dig Here" magazine (if there was one ;-)
