    Well looks like PPL has done it again, mother nature knocks out the pole or wires and they send out 2 trucks, but in this case someone’s responsible for it, and has an insurance policy, so they send out 6 to 10, isn’t that insurance fraud.

    Definitely excessive expense !
    But they are a utility, that’s what they do. GOUGE !!

    Now take this same vehicle that hits the pole to get fixed, And the insurance company steps in and says the repair cost is excessive.

    And I don’t want to hear the excuse that it was the location, because They would do the same thing in an alley like they did last year when a garbage truck took one out just off of Lackawanna ave.

    The idiots at Penn DOT allowed a concrete beam to be taken down while traffic was still moving underneath with a crane on 10-24-16 in Dupont on 81.
