    I would understand why this happened. Based on several eyewitness accounts for safety issues and faulty job site safety guidelines. DePatco thinks they are excluded from legal boundaries for many issues, including the lack of environmental controls in their gravel pits, and the traffic violations repeatedly carried out by the drivers they use to haul gravel to and from their project sites.
