Ours are fairly clean, big fines for littering and crews out there cleaning them up several times each summer.

We do see a few suicidal deer though.

Oh hell NO.  My area and freeways get top billing for dirty, trashy and homeless.  I don't know why we are not using resources to clean up. Insane!! In my area the local government wants volunteers to do clean up.

Our highways are roads through paradise.   Private companies can "adopt" a street.   The interstates and main highways are cleaned up by contractors.   Other state and county roads are attended to by prisoners on work release, or by misdemeanor offenders who got "3 days on the Sheriff's Road Patrol" as part of their plea bargain.

i always found ohio to have relatively decent roads, the I5 corridor between Stockton and Los Angeles is pretty awful, chicago hands down is the scariest road to drive, and the only place my truck was used as target practice

for reference, i was a long haul truck driver for 4 years before becoming a Realtor and have driven over 400,000 miles in all 48 contiguous states.

Oh, that is so sad, Dennis Swartz! Even passing through Charlotte via our freeways, passersby see gorgeous green and impeccably clean! I've often joked that instead of being called the Queen City, we should be called the Green City!  I hope how soon someone catches on and takes the bull by the horns and gets Columbus freeways cleaned up, Dennis.

Traveling I75 South, every 30 seconds a plastic bag would blow from the Waste Management truck ahead of me. When I observed all the stuff piled against the chain link, it all looked similar.

As a result Saint Petersburg Florida is highly likely to ban plastic bags at groceries. That means instead of using grocery bags as my kitchen bag, I will need to BUY other plastic bags. There will be no change. Why not just fix Waste Management?
