The Road to Hell...

The road to Hell is paved with good intentions -- and we've got the perfect tires for driving it.

Two-million tires, dumped off the Florida coast iin 1972, were supposed to create an artificial reef and attract game fish -- which in turn would attract tourists to Broward County.

But the metal fasteners holding the 36 acres of tires together have rusted away. Now, tides and hurricanes are sweeping individual tires around -- whacking them into engangered coral and other marine life.

The Miami Herald has video of the tire reef. (Miami Herald)
