    Default Lazy tradie?

    $300+ tyre ruined on Windsor Rd, Northmead because some muppet was too stupid to clean up after him- or herself.

    Why can't people dispose of stanley knife blades properly?

    That's a shame looks to be a near new tyre.
    Seems pretty widespread. There is a locksmith near work.
    I won't park anywhere near the back of their shop.
    There are screws and bolts all over the ground.

    That's usually my sort of luck; have experienced too many "revenue negative" events for my liking.

    While we were still in Sydney the house across the street was being endlessly renovated with multiple trade vehicles there from 6:30am (yes they earned the wrath of Mrs UFO for noise before 7am!) Every couple of days I would wander into the streets in the afternoon and pick up random screws, nails and other building site waste and flick it over the fence of the building site.

    My mate "Hoover" who lives in the same townhouse complex as me has a Holden SS ute with very low profile, extra wide tyres. He is forever complaining about trashing tyres and occasionally wheel rims due to the magnetic qualities of his tyres with regard to screws /nails on the driveway. He reckons with ultra low profile tyres, the difference between a trashed tyre and a trashed rim is about 5 minutes (before there is no rubber insulating the rim).

    We have a builder that lives here and I think he is the culprit. I have picked up a few screws, but have been warned off by the wife about picking up strange screws on the complex. Too close to home...?

    Maybe you should refrain from taking your stray screws home.

    Some erudite councils have these things which they send around the streets on a regular basis, hoovering up tradie left overs, dead possums, dogs, drunks etc. maybe you should ask your councils to be more erudite?

    Unfortunately, they are just used on public roads, not private driveways in medium density housing complexes. My mate Hoover is getting so shell shocked that he is out with the broom every few days, sweeping the driveway.

    A tradie dropped a lovely extension ladder in front of me;demolished undertray and drivers door,he didn't stop and unfortunately the car I was driving didn't have roofracks,at least I would have had something to show for it.
