As far as leaving things in the middle of highways (http://news.nationalpost.com/2012/11/22/in-one-chinese-province-the-government-literally-paves-a-highway-around-homeowners-who-refuse-to-move/) goes.

You thought utility poles (http://bbs.homeshopmachinist.net/threads/56758-completely-ot-crazy-canuck) were too much?

And Ironically, especially considering the history of the country in question, this time it's not the government's fault.

They can't repave 2479 feet of road around here in 90 days.
