SHARP IDEA FROM SWEDEN
JOYRIDING is the latest teenage craze in Sweden, and a large number of midnight cops-and-kids chases at Daytona speeds have ended in bad injuries and demolished cars. To discourage these shenanigans Swedish cops now use a strip of nails that can be laid across a road on which joyriders are careering. The hollow nails, if picked up, let air escape slowly, deflate tire within 200 yards.
