New Bills Aims To Keep Grass Clippings Off Roads

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) -- A new bill making its way through Harrisburg would make it illegal to deposit grass clippings on the road.

State Sen. Camera Bartolotta, who serves parts of Beaver, Greene and Washington counties, introduced the bill.

She says the goal is to keep motorcyclists safe.

Grass clippings on the road can make it extremely slippery for motorcyclists, similar to hitting a patch of ice in the winter.

Sen. Bartolotta also says the grass clippings can clog storm drains, making flooding worse.
