Usage

Example input:

$records = [
    [
        'state'  => 'IN',
        'city'   => 'Indianapolis',
        'object' => 'School bus',
    ],
    [
        'state'  => 'IN',
        'city'   => 'Indianapolis',
        'object' => 'Manhole',
    ],
    [
        'state'  => 'IN',
        'city'   => 'Plainfield',
        'object' => 'Basketball',
