Conversing w/ a Traffic Engineer

"We can't have obstacles in the clear zone."

"What is the clear zone?"

"A zone that must be clear of obstacles on either side of the street so that cars don't run off the street and hit anything."

"How wide is this clear zone?"

"Twenty-five feet."

"That is my entire front yard. My kids play in the yard."

"I would not recommend that."

"What is the total project cost?"

"The project cost is $9 million."
