it doesnt suprise me. i manage a repair shop for these guys and alot of them could care less about anyone else. they will sit there and brag about not paying to dispose of the tire carcasas and just leaving them loose to fall off on the road. man i get hot when they talk like this. its a wonder i still have my job after five years

We can do like they want to do in California for ammunition, each individual bullet (or tire) would have a unique number, and we would keep track of who bought which ones.

The computer system alone to track such information would only cost the taxpayers $184billion, plus $6billion annually to run the ever growing database

They will never cure people from dumping tire carcasses or anything else for that matter. Certain people are just lazy.

Ever wonder where the tire disposal fee they charge you goes? Ya think most of the money the state collects goes towards disposing of illegally dumped tires?

I actually ran over these when I was on my way to the Jessika Chau memorial ride. I was passing a car on the highway and right when I went to change lanes I saw it on the lane divider and was like oh . I raised my of the seat and both tires came off the ground.

When my bike came back down it fish tailed from the front and back wheels. Lucky for me I kept the shiny side up. Talk about freaking out. I litterally my pants. Then I popped a wheelie and continued my way to PP1.

That happen to me once but it was a from a full-size truck, rim and tire. Ran over the think in my car doing about 90 on the beltway, sparks were flyng everywhere almost hit the center divider. There was a blazer that drove into the bedliner and they went sliding down the road too. Scared the outta me, car has not drove the same since, it had about 5 grand in undercarrige damage and no body damage.
