"We try to push a contractor into a very compressed schedule. We do a lot of work at night, after 7:00 PM and especially after 9:00 PM, and try to open up those lanes before 6:00 AM," Explains Tom Hein.

"I don't have to crowd. I don't have to be a jerk. I don't have to do anything crazy. I just have to use my head and drive smart."
