Interstate 10 Jacked Up This Morning Due to Aluminum Cans All Over the Place
The can-tastrophe, toward the end of the cleanup process.
If your commute was ruined by traffic on Interstate 10 this morning, we'll tell you that the culprit has been revealed as aluminum cans.
Like, a lot of aluminum cans, which covered several lanes of traffic near the Salt River Bridge.
Although all the lanes were back open around 8:30 a.m., ADOT says the traffic on I-10 and I-17 is "VERY slow" due to the can incident.
I-17 is still VERY slow from the Stack interchange to the Split interchange near Sky Harbor, thanks to the earlier can spill. #PhxTraffic

If we had to guess, this sound like a case of the Michigan bottle-deposit scam:
