Red Car Property: Watch Your Step! Rusty Nails Dumped With Gravel

Photo: Diane Edwardson, April 20, 2015.  A few weeks ago, someone dumped some gravel in the deep tire ruts on the Red Car Property just north of Rose Scharlin Nursery School.  Today I happened to notice there were a bunch of 3 - 6" rusty nails in it.  This is not certified fill.  

Regardless whether or not it was an intentional dumping of nails, it's just another reason the property should be blocked to vehicle traffic.  It's a pretty safe bet this gravel wasn't carried in.  It was driven here.

Hope you've had your tetanus shot before picking up the nails.
