The Backhoe: A Real Cyberthreat
on Jan. 9, cable TV contractors sinking a half-mile of cable ...
pulled up something unexpected ... long-distance service for millions
of Sprint PCS and Nextel wireless customers west of the Rockies blinked
off.

....
A study issued last month ... calculated that there were more than
675,000 excavation accidents in 2004 in which underground cables or
pipelines were damaged.



It's something the Street Works regulations in England & Wales (and
probably equivalent elsewhere in the UK) are designed to minimnise.
Although it won't reduce them to zero, and the councils which enforce
them are more concerned with the standard of re-instatement of the
surface, I'm sure we do better than the incident rate quoted in the
article. It works out at about 2 incidents per 1,000 population per
annum.
