6: Littering on The Freeway
Perhaps one of the worst problems that motorist encounter is littering. We’ve all been driving down the freeway and seen boxes of garbage tossed to the side. Here is one story a motorcyclist encountered. “I was riding my motorcycle down the freeway when some asshole threw half a Mcdonald’s milkshake out of the window, still in its cup. Through some random fluke of physical dexterity, I caught it (it would have hit me in the chest, near enough.) I caught up to the guy in traffic a minute later. His sunroof was open, so I returned the cup.” – via Some eCards
As you can see, this motorcyclist was pretty upset. But, the inherent risk of throwing garbage out on the freeway is there as well. Whether you puncture a tire on trash or lose control of a vehicle, nothing good comes from illegal dumping.
