Will lower litter fines help clean up roads?

-A A +A
By Greg Summers

COLUMBIA – The S.C. House passed a bill Tuesday that substantially cuts fines for littering in the Palmetto State.
Rep. Chandra Dillard, (D-Greenville) pushed for the reduction.
Instead of a $450 fine for tossing less than 15 pounds of litter, the bill passed Tuesday drops the fine for littering to $25 to $100. However, it increases some of the penalties for illegal dumping, or large quantities of trash.
“I am open to anything that would start making our highways and byways look a little better,” Dillard told The State newspaper.
