The Florida Department of Transportation has a new and exciting campaign that KACB will be helping out with in 2015. The Drive It Home campaign aims to "Keep Our Paradise Litter-Free" and focuses on reducing roadside litter, much of which can create dangerous driving conditions.
Did you know that more than 25,000 accidents are caused by vehicle-related road debris each year in the U.S.? (FDOT)
Let's help to reduce those numbers and keep our county clean, too!
