I go pogo

What would Transportation Safety Month be without a visit to University Avenue in Provo and our old "Explore Provo" public information campaign?

Because the project went right through downtown, a lot of people got a front row ticket to see live road construction for the very first time. And let me tell you, it ain't like pouring a patio or putting in a sidewalk! They use all kinds of machines that most folks have never even heard of, let alone seen in action.

One of those machines is a compactor, which (as the name implies) compacts the subsurface of the road in preparation for the concrete. There's a lot of bouncing involved in operating one, which led me to this cartoon.
