From January until mid-July of this year (2007), UHP received more than 4,814 calls involving debris in Salt Lake County alone, said Sgt. Jeff Nigbur. Of those calls, 280 were about crashes involving debris, 203 were calls to locate a vehicle spilling gravel on the road and 63 were to locate a person littering.
Utah’s fine for littering can be as much as $750, with a $100 minimum fine. Other states such as Maryland charge up to $30,000, depending on the size of the debris on the road.
