Roofing Nails and Tires 😭

Driving to dinner at a friend’s house a couple days ago and ran over a pile of roofing nails that had fallen off a truck, we guess. An entire box was across our lane. We didn’t recognize what they were until too late. Tires on the passenger side impaled! The Discount Tire was able to repair punctures in one tire but we needed to replace the other. Sure wish people would secure their loads.

    1. We didn’t realize what we had run over on our way to your house until we were loading up our car to the RV to head down to Concord on Friday morning. It looked like a box of green pellets or something. If we had known, we would have stopped and picked them all up. I wonder how many others had their tires destroyed?
