Everyone knows that litter creates an eyesore and an image problem. But littering is not only ugly, it can be dangerous.
It harms the environment. It endangers wildlife and animal habitats. It hurts economic development and creates a public safety hazard.
Motorists who swerve to avoid debris in the road risk losing control of their vehicle. Litter and debris blowing from unsecured loads on trucks can strike other vehicles, obscure a driver's vision, damage vehicles and even injure drivers.
