Stuff you find on Florida roads: plastic and glass near work


This is the second installment of "Stuff you find on Florida roads." And I almost became a victim of road rage to bring it to you.

It seems that another minor accident happened, and crews did a shoddy job of picking up.

This time, it was in front of the FLORIDA TODAY building on U.S. 1 in Melbourne/Rockledge/Suntree/Brevard (its location is debatable). Of course, my car tires had to roll over the glass and tail-light plastic when I entered the driveway to my workplace.

I snapped this photo from my driver's seat after stopping in the turning lane with a car behind me. Its driver honked and was likely wondering what the heck I was doing. Luckily, that person didn't turn into FLORIDA TODAY. I thought it was a co-worker. That would have been awkward.

The things you miss when you live in one place ... honestly, it's no big deal to see all that crap on the roads. You get used to it. Do they really clean it up in other places? Maybe I should give places in the North a second thought ...

Uh. Yes. They clean it up.

Why the heck would you expect to see that on the road? I mean, glass isn't good for tires. Or is it?

I've never seen such commonplace road refuse in other states. And if I ever did, it wouldn't stay on the road for so long.

I hope you turned off your car's engine while you were holding up traffic, lol.
