    This is at a store where I put the system in; the driveway design doesn't work for large trucks. Also, while I was working here a car ran right over the same area. The driver was a kid who dropped his cigarette in his lap. I moved two sprays heads away from the curb and reconnected the lateral to a row which runs parallel to the road.

    That isn't a bad idea but in our area they use big rock bolders......funny how people don't seem to run over them.

    I tried and tried and tried to convice them to put bolders but they wouldn't let me so I put rocks; they were happy.

    Because of course it would be Walgreens fault that people cant drive worth a darn. Always someone elses fault, cant blame the store I guess. Nice work. Did you bring all that rip-rap in on pallets and flatbed?
