More from Artistic Outpost's Route 66 plate. Those of you who are old enough may have stepped on one of these tabs and cut your foot. I did it many times during my childhood. I grew up in Texas, and we were wild animals who didn't wear shoes for weeks during the summer. These tabs would be everywhere: in the sand at the beach, river or lake, in the grass, just everywhere. Then at some point they started the "Pitch In!" to clean up America bit it the 70's, and things got a little better. (Remember the crying Indian commercial?) Of course at some point, they came up with a better pop tab design, and these were no longer an issue.
