Bulldozer and Poor Road Construction and Maintenance

This is a drilling rig and other equipment being pulled to the next drill site by a bulldozer because the access road is in such bad shape that the drilling rig and truck cannot get there on their own.  It is common practice for bulldozers to pull rigs and trucks in this fashion due to road conditions.  These road conditions would clearly violate State regulations after drilling is done.  They may or may not violated current state regulations during drilling!  A suit could be brought that this driller is exceeding his common law rights to do only what is fairly necessary to the surface in order to produce the minerals.
