Texans Don’t Litter, Do They?

While Texans are proud of their state’s roadways and natural beauty, roadside litter is still a problem. Most Texans know that “Don’t Mess with Texas” is the TxDOT slogan reminding us not to litter. There are hefty fines for littering in Texas. Most litter comes from items discarded from vehicles, and most of that is comprised of small items like cigarette butts, straws, and gum wrappers.
