Osborne Reef, an artificial reef made of disposed tires, is located off the coast of Fort Lauderdale. The reef has been deemed an environmental disaster, as the ocean has caused the tires to wear out, break free from the reef, and in turn kill living organisms in their path, as well as pollute the waterways and nearby beaches. We find this particularly interesting because our firm handles many significant tire defect and rollover cases.
