burner
 n.— «That mark usually involves a long strip of angry-looking scalded rubber, which can be seen on many of the island’s twisting roads.…And while the work of Chuggy and the native tribe of so-called burners may never hang in one of the dozens of galleries in and near Stonington, their handiwork is being memorialized in “Tire Tracks,” a 40-minute documentary.» —“A New Film Documents One Town’s Automotive Version of Graffiti” by David Carr in Stonington, Maine New York Times Aug. 16, 2006.
