Cool report!

I remember years and years ago we were working on Crete (Greece) and had to run a thin cable hundreds of meters across the fields, also crossing a small asphalt road. I had put about 10m in a loop on each side (as a safety) and also put some rocks on it to keep it on the ground, as we could only check it from time to time instead of leaving someone to watch.
Maybe an hour later we heard screeming tires and looked down the field towards the road. The cable must have lifted from the ground and got caught on the hood of a pickup. The driver just drove back a few meters to let the cable drop and moved on. Never honked or anything.
Seemed normal for them ... I run to apologize and check for damage, but he was out of sight within seconds.
