What do tehy do, I see temporary setups two wires taped down acorss roadway leading to locked box the size of a lunch box (not locked to anything, just locked shut). Are these to check traffic usage or speed? I'd say not speed but then why are there two wires?

they are rubber hoses and are for counting traffic... the reason for two is to differentiate between traffic in either direction. This is usually done if new development is planned or to justify placing stoplights and such... pretty standard traffic engineering stuff.

LOL!!!

Dude, go outside!

just shoot the box and wait to see who comes to fix it.
then ask them.

I think they're busy making crop circles.

They are checking the treads on your tires.

It's the only way to determine whethor or not you are ripe for the implant.

If you have to ask, then it's probably already happened to you...

They are measuring the speed/volume of traffic. The wires here only go across one direction of traffic, though I have seen a setup on the opposite side as well, just not connected to the first. Oddly enough, I have only just started seeing these around Phoenix recently. Or did I just not pay attention before now?

Hang out in a tree and surprise the guy that comes to collect the devices and ask him just what he thinks he's doing tracking you!

I saw a huge cable in the middle of the woods partially exposed, maybe a foot long section. Maybe me think of Lost.

screw 'em up! if traffic allows, go over and back up on one of the wires with say your front wheels, then take off. they counter will show one wire with X crossings and the other wire with X+10 or how many times you backed up over and over it.

And for some trivia, Microsoft's first sale of software was for one of those machines.
Link Posted: 10/6/2005 12:49:25 PM EDT
hehehehe I think I'm gonna lay my own wires down and lead them into my apartment and see who comes.
Link Posted: 10/6/2005 12:50:16 PM EDT
It would be fun to move the wires about 6 inches aprt from each other. The speed data would look hilarious.

What they really are is electromagnetic thought programmers.

If you cup your hands over you ears and squeeze your butt cheeks together when you drive over them you should be OK...

Brain chip signal boosters.

They cover the most people by putting them on the roads that everyone travels.

Wierd... some big white van with an dish just pulled up in my driveway... gotta go.


eta: See, KN's post above mine has heard of them.

What I want to know is who is spray painting USA in white with an arrow pointed at my house right where the underground service access to my house runs

It's the only way Will Smith & Tommy Lee Jones can track the alien invaders.
