The first video. Aren't they supposed to just spot spray paint on cement/pavors? Those lines are not going away anytime soon.
3-4' away is nothing, try 12' away. Last year I hit the phone and cable line, DigSafe marked them as being on the other side of the Driveway. To make it worse, it was during Verizon's strike. Usually here they will use the chalk paint on cement and handicapping, but on occasion they will use regular marking paint on those surfaces.
Why do people not respect us as they do other tradesmen? Because every Tom, Dick, and Harry doesn't think he can be a plumber or electrician!
