Now, finally, if you leave your disgusting trash full of human waste you will be ticketed, at least in California. The CHP is now ticketing drivers for leaving their bottles and other "solid" waste along the highway, in rest area parking lots and in any other public place. This is long overdue. There is absolutely no excuse for leaving this type of trash. Really there is no excuse for littering at all, anywhere. Would you want to be the person who has to pick this trash up? I mean, really. The industry has a bad enough reputation to the general public. You cannot go around calling yourself a professional and leave a poo bag in a parking lot. Do you think professionals in other fields do this? Do you think Bill Gates leaves full Gatorade bottles along the road during his travels? I highly doubt it. I don't want to hear the excuses of no parking, full rest areas or anything else. No one should have to clean up human waste in a plastic bag. No one. It is disgusting and people doing it should be ashamed of themselves. Don't try to just blame new drivers or mega carriers for this one, either. It is all experience levels and all companies.

See you on the clean road!
