Amen! I drive down a twisty canyon road pretty regularly. About every other week, especially in winter, someone tags the guardrail. That usually results in a few broken guardrail posts. I like to watch for the repair crews to come fix it. Then as soon as they leave, I swoop in and gather up all the broken timbers. They are 6" x 8" and usually about 2 feet long (depending on where they broke). I take them home and cut off the jagged ends. I use them all the time.
