Shoes tie up Miami expressway

Thousands of pairs of shoes with their laces tied together blocked traffic today in Miami.

State troopers are looking for a charity to take thousands of shoes that were dumped on a Miami expressway, tying up rush hour traffic. Lt. Pat Santangelo says the Florida Highway Patrol received a call about the shoes Friday morning.

Santangelo says he's not sure where the shoes came from. There were no signs of a crash and no one stopped to claim them. He says he hopes someone will take them because he doesn't want to send them to the dump.

I think it was space aliens.

They used highway equipment to sweep the shoes to the shoulder but it was expected that traffic was delayed for hours because of the shoes.
