Melissa, Thankful to be back home on cleaner Highways.
Melissa, Try it on a bicycle! A couple of years ago I rode a bike solo - towing a trailer (alas, not fiber glass) - from CA to DC. Rode the southern route 'cause it was winter There were stretches of highway where there was everything, including the kitchen sink, dumped on the roadside.
The worst was the shredded tires
- the wire cord was murder on bike and trailer tires. The rest seemed to be a combination of litter bugs and bad tie down technique and straps. I saw more of those hooked black rubber straps broken next to debris than I could count.
If we all use the right bungies/straps and make sure everything is secure it would cut down on a lot of junk. The rest is tire standards and litter law...
Oh, no state, CA included, was better than any other. The roads were as bad in the Mojave Desert as in the Atlanta suburbs...
