You may see groups of young adults along Oregon highways this summer. Since 1971,  the 'Youth Litter Patrol' gets together to help keep Oregon highways clean. "The young people who flock to our roads during the summer, the litter patrol. And they started about two to three weeks ago, in various parts of the states. And these are young adults that we bring aboard who spend their 2 months of summer vacation between high school and college generally, a lot of them, and they’re out there making our highways look good."  Peter Murphy with ODOT says the effort in keeping the road looking good has many benefits; including preventing littering and vandalism. Murphy says he's traveled to other countries and it's amazing to see the special effort Americans make to keep the roads clean.
