Reminds me of the two state workers, one digging holes, the other following and filling them up. Asked why they were doing that, they said, 'Well, there were three of us, but they laid off Bubba, who put the shrubs in the holes."
Tigger I agree our stripe crew would just shut the machine off then start it again on the other side. That picture has temporary striping tape you can see the over lap and the edges don't match. I don't want my stripers to stop and move the branch I want my maintenance crew to go ahead of them and remove obstacles. The problem is they don't always tell me when they are going to be in my area.
