MEMPHIS, TN – In Memphis people shook their heads over what looked like lazy work by a road crew.
But according to the crew’s superiors, the workers were just following policy. The city engineer says road striping is done in a three-vehicle convoy and once it gets rolling, it’s safer not to stop. A note is made and the crew will come back to follow up.
In other words, what looked like sheer laziness amounts to staying safe.
