28,000,000 total locate requests for 2013. Per CGA.
2+2 Beers = 6 pack.
Greetings Nb22x! Roughly speaking, I am being told there were a quarter million damages on 28 million valid locate requests. That equates to 1 damage for every 112 tickets generated (28 X 4 = 112) - NATIONWIDE! That's like 3 or 4 damages a month in my small area. Based on roughly 40 damages a year in my area, a 16% at-fault ratio would be 7 at-faults a year. I don't know how long I would last in this business with a quality ratio like that................. just sayin'.
