If it's against the law, then it should never happen, right? 

Also, I know a lot of people getting their own easements and not using the RoW. You can't be forced into anything except by eminent domain.

The fibre optic cables are buried within the RoW, not on private property. 

It is against the law to dig without having utilities located first.
