Along the Wasatch Front there are more than 1000 instances of lost cargo every month. This leads to more than 500 serious accidents annually in Utah. These lost items also contribute to a large amount of the litter collected from Utah roads. To address the growing problem, UDOT is introducing a new public awareness campaign called LITTER HURTS. This campaign is one of first in the nation to focus on large litter items, such as ladders, couches, and mattresses. The multi-faceted campaign will include TV commercials, radio spots, billboards, point-of-purchase displays at retail stores, a Web site, and more.
