Troopers, McCrory Announce "Litter Free NC"

MORRISVILLE, N.C. The Highway Patrol and Gov. Pat McCrory want to get rid of the litter on North Carolina roads, and save taxpayer dollars to clean up the mess.


McCrory, state troopers and the Department of Public Safety have started an education and enforcement campaign called "Litter Free NC."


The effort announced Monday will include highlighting the harm litter causes to the environment, wildlife and public safety. Motorists also can call the Highway Patrol at "star-H-P" on their cellphones to report littering or trucks with unsecured loads. State laws allow for fines and community service for littering citations.


The state Department of Transportation says it spent more than $16 million to remove about 7 million pounds of roadside litter last year.
