LOL!!! Reminds me of a night I got a phone call from Ventura County Sheriffs at 4am one morning, telling me they just found our compactor. Someone had left a key in it and some drunk guy fired it up and drove it down the steet. Noone spotted him until he had made it about 4 miles from the job heading towards Ventura Harbor.

How he made it that far Ill never know, considering it wasnt a smooth drum. It was whats called a sheeps foot compactor, has "nubs" all the way around it that dig into the dirt for compaction. The result of those nubs is that it sounds like a few hundred people beating the streets with a hammer when its rolling on asphalt.
