In 2009, 51 billion pieces of litter found the road instead of the garbage can. Over 17% of roadside litter comes from unsecured or uncovered items blown off a truck or an auto. Unsightly and environmentally unfriendly, roadside litter blows and travels into waterways, into environmentally sensitive areas, and sometimes even gets carried away by animals. The litter mentioned here is only along the roadside, not litter in general. The amount of garbage in other public areas is staggering. Again, it is not just a problem of aesthetics, but an environmental problem.
Regular highway drivers have certainly seen the larger items along the roadside. Mattresses, chairs, large and small appliances, construction debris, tires and parts of tires--most drivers have seen these items. Imagine driving behind someone when that mattress or chair flies out of the bed of a pickupÖ It can be a disasteródestructive if not fatal.
