The 50-ish owners of this vehicle set a wonderful example for us all. While about to leave the La Visitors' Info Center on I10 (entering LA from Texas) on June 3rd, 2007, they noticed that a bag of refuse had been blown out of the garbage bin by the strong winds of an approaching storm. The woman ran after the garbage, collected it all and stuffed it deeply back into the trash container so it would not blow out again. This was, to my knowledge, not their bag of fast food garbage. She had to run a considerable distance to catch-up with all of it! Thank you, Michiganders! I'm not from Michigan, but I'm proud of you for being what an American should be!

Great wire! There is so much trash on the side of the road in IL, it is disgusting. Kids go to a friends house for a party on our block and sweep their car out into the neighborhood lawns before leaving.

Excellent wire!! I wish that the people from Louisiana, (me included), cared that much.

That guy is waging a losing battle trying to clean up Louisiana...heck, even FEMA failed miserably.
