*Sigh* Godammit Florida...

An unknown Florida Man™ is scattering roofing nails on part of US 1 through Oak Hill, leading to flattened tires and clean-up costs:

The nails have been responsible for flattening a number of tires, include one belonging to the wife of Oak Hill Mayor Doug Gibson, Fox 25 Orlando reported Thursday.

“The issue to me is safety,” Gibson said. U.S. 1 runs through Oak Hill for about two miles.

Gibson ordered the purchase of three magnetic rollers to scoop up the nails. So far hundreds have been collected.

I mean, I get that living in a town of two thousand or so (and the “hill” is barely 13 feet ASL) is boring, but this seems like a poor choice of entertainment.
