In this Caltrans News Flash, Public Information Officer Maria Rocha explores the importance of securing truck cargo loads to reduce accidents, litter and worker time spent in traffic lanes. An unsecured truck load is dangerous and illegal, and items that fall or fly out increase the state’s litter problem. Litter on the roadways can also find its way to streams, rivers, and lakes. Time spent collecting trash cuts the time available for repairing roads, spraying weeds, trimming trees and other tasks.
