Secure Your Load to prevent road debris and accidents, June 6

The old car transports a heap of rubbish

In recognition of “Secure Your Load Day” on Tuesday, June 6, a national effort championed by King County resident Robin Abel, the King County Solid Waste Division is encouraging all residents to take the time to properly secure their loads to improve road safety, avoid fees, and prevent litter. A recent study by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety found that road debris contributes to more than 50,000 traffic crashes every year in the U.S. Of those crashes, 125 people lost their lives. It only takes a few minutes to properly secure your load to prevent auto crashes, injuries, deaths, and fines from law enforcement.
