JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

Fed up with trucks trashing the road, police have been asked to increase patrols along Highway 1 south of Jonesboro.

The roadway, according to E911 Director Jeff Presley, is littered with paper and other debris.

He blames the “ongoing problem of trucks with unsecured loads headed to the landfill.”

As a result, he says drivers should expect extra police checking the traffic in this area.

If you see anyone littering, Presley urges you to call Jonesboro police at 870-933-5551 or the Arkansas toll-free Litter Hotline at 1-866-811-1222.
