Road trash

Has anybody noticed the increasing amount of trash at the side of our roads and highways?

I seldom, if ever, see anyone litter from a car window, but I regularly see trash flying out of the beds of trucks. Furthermore, my windshield has been damaged on more than one occasion by something flying out of the back of a truck. Recently, debris from a truck damaged the front spoiler of my car. Imagine if I had been driving a motorcycle when the metal pipe flew out of the truck in front of me.

If you have a pickup, please keep the bed free from garbage and debris, and please secure and cover your load when traveling on our roads.
