pipebursting sewer lateral

In your experience, how often do you see overweight traffic (like cement trucks traveling on a crumbling street) breaking or crushing old clay sewer service lines?

My village engineer denies that any service line (over a few feet deep) can be affected by traffic -- regardless of road condtions. Instead, he has informed me that broken sewer services are often the cause of road damage!

Unfortunately, I am responsible for repairing the service all the way to the main sewer. I'll bet my lunch that you fellows have never seen a homeowner get a village to pick up part of the tab in a case like this (without a little help from Dowe Cheatum & How).
