A friend - now retired - at a local city started work there as an inspector. He was the one who educated me on the concept of "drive by inspections". He said that as an apprentice, an old time inspector took him out into the field and "educated" him in the procedure.
But hey, government shall set us free. After all, if we didn't have all those laws, regulations and inspections, huge high rises might lean or something.............oh, wait.
