Caltrans: Roadside Litter

In the latest Caltrans News Flash, Public Information Officer Patrick Olsen details the costs and other impacts that littering has on our roads. Caltrans is asking that everyone do their part to prevent trash from reaching California’s roadways. Last year alone, cleanup costs exceeded $69 million statewide. In addition to resources that could be focused elsewhere, the debris can create safety hazards for both Caltrans Maintenance crews and the traveling public.
