I think you would be hard pressed to prove which construction contractor would be liable for the nails in the street.

There is only one contractor in here building all of the homes. They are building every home in my community.

I've never seen a messier construction site overall, as I've seen in my community.

I took a photo of the shit that I found within 100 yards of my driveway and piled it on my work bench. I found all of that just now, 20 minutes ago. The stuff in the bag was from the past weekend. In one of the pics, you can see my truck (black) in the background. They are going to pay for my wife's tires if it's the last thing I do. This weekend I'm getting my Toyo Open Country MTs put on. If I find a nail in one of those, they will be shelling out another $300+ for each one.

In the one photo with the port-pooper nearby, that mound of dirt is raised about 3-4 inches with nails, screws, pieces of metal all in it. I picked up what was laying around the edges and on top. No telling what's under the dirt. Mind you, this pile STAYS here even after the street sweeper runs every night (or every other night).
Sorry to see that happening. I would be PO'd as we'll. have you contacted any of your local politicians. They should have a bylaw in place or an inspector to come out and have a look at that I am really surprised that they wouldn't look after you or even consider the fact that you actually picked up all the crap that the trades left behind. It's there job to keep the sites clean.

Good luck. I would also speak to surrounding neighbours and inquire about tire repairs. Get a list compiled.

I think that that's solid advice. I had mentioned it earlier in the thread.

However, if I can add to the part about talking with the neighbors, It may also be prudent to speak with neighbors on a street that don't have any construction going on in an attempt to obtain a "control" situation for comparison.

That may be a soft control, but I like the idea. You'd want to check the routes those residents take, to ensure their access and egress and Randy's are mutually exclusive where any construction vehicle travels are concerned.

What I would consider would be this:

Research where the contractor has developed PRIOR to now, and pound the pavement in those hoods looking for earlier offenses. You'd be looking for the earlier homes chronologically, in those developments. Then track the streets through the neighborhood establishing the routes work trucks would have taken to and from the main arteries.

If their crews are not abiding by the bi-laws Ed referred to then finding a pattern of behavior can only bolster your case.

The way the community is setup, nearly all residents travel through at least one construction zone. There are only about 2 houses that do not have construction between their house and the front gates. Even at that, there are some bumps on the roads, so anything left on tailgates, flatbeds, etc, are prone to being knocked off on the bumps. I've been busy today with my truck (new wheels, new tires, washing, etc.), but tomorrow I'm going to sit down and get a game plan in place. Going to contact a news channel, find out about the laws on highway safety and possibly contact someone from FDOT. I used to work in FDOT headquarters directly with the Secretary. I know a log of the "big wigs" up there. They all liked me, so I'm sure I can get some advice from one of them somehow.

PS. I'm about to post some pics of my new wheels and tires under the 2014 section, go check'em out!

Make sure you get road hazard for your tires in the mean time. $20 extra a tire is cheaper than paying out of pocket.
