They paved paradise...

...and put up a parking garage filled with cars the government bought but never used:
Have you ever bought a brand new car only to forget where you put it? How about 300 of them? Probably not – unless you're Miami-Dade County, which was recently reunited with 298 vehicles it bought brand new between 2006 and 2007.

The county "discovered" this fleet of no-mileage vehicles after reading about them in a Spanish-language newspaper there. Most of the misplaced motorcade is made up of Toyota Prius hybrids whose warranties either expired with very few miles on the odo or will very soon.
I suppose the silver lining is the county ensured those hybrids didn't emit ANY carbon dioxide the past five years... and at a cost of only $4 million, too!
