The essential ecological accessory for travelling by car

Essential ecological accessory for travelling by car

According to the French association of freeway companies (AFSA), nearly 5,000 tons of waste were found on the 40,000 hectares of green borders along the freeways. This practice of throwing away waste outside of one's vehicle is not about to stop if we question the French. In fact, these catastrophic figures still show that 33% of motorists still practice "this national sport". France is, like other countries, the world champion in throwing waste on the sides of the freeways. And we are not talking about the main and secondary roads ! How to reduce waste on the freeways ? What reflexes to adopt ?

Identify the problems related to waste on the road

Before jumping headlong into an action to clean up the sides of the highways or propose an alternative solution to prevent this from happening, it is essential to understand what the problems are related to waste on the road. The waste on the side of the freeways represents risks of accidents and fires, but also factors of environmental pollution and degradation of the landscape. When we question the drivers, we discover that 66% of them do not sort their waste of waste on their vacation route.

Nearly 99% are not aware of the concept of a car trash can that collects waste and only 1% admit to owning one.

Moreover, many smokers have taken the habit of throwing their cigarette butts out of the window when they drive, because they say that it gives off a bad smell in the passenger compartment. On this point, the figures are alarming, it represents 200 butts per kilometer and per day. When we know that a cigarette butt pollutes 500 liters of water and that it takes 1 to 2 years to obtain its complete degradation.

And we are not talking about those who eat, drink and work even in their car and who transform their interior into a garbage can on wheels. Finally, geographically speaking, even the sides of the freeways are still considered as "almost clean", the secondary roads and in particular the urban roads such as the ring roads and the bypasses around the cities are the dirtiest roads. When faced with such a constant, how to react ? Which behaviors to adopt ?

Waste on the side of the road

Act effectively to reduce waste on the road

The first thing to do is a question of education. The French, even if they are numerous to throw their waste on the side of the road, consider that 95% of them are still concerned by littering. 2/3 of the population even confide in feeling very concerned. This is quite a paradox because the French are concerned but do not act, and this despite the urgent need to preserve the biodiversity of their natural environments.

Whether it is at the level of children and students, but also within companies, it is essential to talk about this problem to raise awareness. With awareness campaigns, workshops, videos, it is quite possible to evoke this problem so that each one becomes aware of its implication and its eco-citizen responsibility. Then, the other solution is more practical since it is a question of equipping the cars of private individuals or professionals, rental cars and trucks with a waste collection garbage can specially designed for vehicles.
