Though more than 80% of littering is intentional, an estimated 20% of litter is unintentional and ends up on our roadways. Operating a vehicle without properly securing its load is not only dangerous and illegal, it also increases the amount of litter found on South Carolina roadways. About 50,000 car accidents per year involve debris on US roadways.

PalmettoPride works to educate the public on the dangers of driving an unsecured load, coordinating Tarp It Days with law enforcement and local governments across the state. Partnering with these organizations, PalmettoPride provides tarps and bungees to support these events and communities through programs like the Litter Enforcement Grant.
