That's in my neighborhood and I almost got stuck, but I know all the shortcuts thru the side streets and parking lots around here and got around it with much trouble. I'm a little surprised that a piece of pvc would spark that level of concern, it must be sorta common for something like that to fall off a truck and end up on the roadside.

Going east or west on 66 I've seen large pieces of Tire rubber, a fully constructed Crib, a rocking chair, a chrome bumper and lat but not least a mattress. Noone seemed to care they just went around it. I dont know why a pvc piping would be that big of concern. However I did see a state tropper put on his lights pull a U-turn and jump out to retreive a cell phone that got flung out of a car on 495 once.

for the many others that are thinking the same thing, i pose the question: does it really matter?

people do stupid stuff and flip there cars but i assure you that if it's important in anyway, you will not have to ask what happened.

there, i said.

I heard that go out on the scanner this morning. That was the Fire Departments FUBAR. Over react and over respond. Guess they have to justify all that equipment somehow.

To Scanner,
If you ever need the Fd to help you or your family, please post that they "Over react and over respond".
To joe,
The "cherry picker" is actually a Fire Truck or Ladder Truck. the other 3, were Engines. Try to educate yourself just a little.
Merry X-mas .

Anything and everything can end up on the beltway. Maybe we should have started a thread of the most unusual things you have seen on the side and in the road.

Not unusual but damn dangerous was a full ladder in the roadway near 66. I thought of my motorcycle riding days and know it would have been certain death to hit that.

I did see an old lady once run over a mattress and it got stuck under her car. It got too hot because of the muffler and the car caught on fire. She had just stepped out of the car to see what happened when it went up like a torch.

Try looking up the numbers from the DOT placards on tankers on the beltway sometime. They transport some real nasty stuff that if leaked or blown to shit would cause such a hazmat mandatory evac disaster.
