    Now, GPL would have to install protective barrier around these Posts/Poles.
    This is total abuse of these Posts/Poles- just standing there minding their own business- or,
    perhaps, GPL could experiment with “suspended poles” 10 feet off the ground.
    How much more abuse could these poles take from speeding drivers ?
