Default Re: New Jersey Sets Six Months to Comply: Lead Wheel Weight

Just a few questions maybe for the engineers here, maybe.

I understand that tires wear away and you never notice the evidence. Do lead wheel weights "disappear" into the environment too?

I've never even seen a wheel weight on the side of the road except maybe ones that a wrecker operator sweeps up. Is this a big problem?

Where did the lead come from in the first place?

Thanks in advance

That's the humerous thing: Mother Nature is the answer to that question.

It's symbol is Pb.

I'll bet more than a few enviro freaks think evil mankind came up with lead.

I would think a bigger concern would be all the lead pipes used in older buildings and houses for water.

Wake up.....Its not worth it living there. English Town Race track is HISTORY...what's the use. I would have sent you a pvt. email but did not have your email address. Sorry if this offends you or anyone else but people should give it some real thought.
I have no problem buying hand guns just paperwork and about 4 mos. waiting for the PO. Long guns are a piece of cake except so called assault weapons can't have a front grip, flash supressor, and get this a bayonet lug.
As far as moving both my daughters and grand daughters all live near by, in NJ and Staten Island. So no moving plans...Yet.
Personally the track discontinuing the drag race program doesn't affect me personally,
got that out of my system in 2010. But I do feel for the current race croud and the town businesses who'll suffer a loss of revenue.
