TxDOT says the Don't Mess with Texas campaign is working

(KYTX) - The Texas Department of Transportation says the Don't Mess with Texas campaign is working. You can see the evidence for yourself.

     
A recent survey shows that visible litter on TX-DOT roads has dropped 34 percent since 2009.
   
That's taking into account more than a million additional drivers on the road since the survey started 4 years ago. 

 "Younger drivers are learning from a young age even before they have a drivers license that litter is bad and it's something we all end up paying for with tax money.

Another successful program is the Adopt-a-Highway Program -- and involves volunteers picking up litter on roads.

 

Littering carries a fine up to 500 dollars for a first time offense.
