We still get some of that from underage kids drinking along the back roads and ditching the empties so they don't get caught. In fact, a couple months ago near the corner of my mom's place, I found...

This; there's a hill near here alongside a park where I can easily hit 25+ in the 20 zone, and yet I get passed there all the time. Local cops used to sit behind the building at the bottom and hand...

Interestingly, the most recent couple sets of Wellgo pedals I've had had plenty of flat width for a normal 15mm wrench. Granted, it was the thinnest one in the $1 bucket at the pawn shop, but no...
