We all know that we have a plastic problem in our water especially in the oceans. So why is ODOT working so hard to add to the problem? That polymer thermal product used for highway road marking of centerline, shoulders, stop bars, and directional arrows breakdown into small particles we all see this time of year. It's that white and yellow sprinkles seen along roads. They wash off into drainage systems then move downstream. I think it's time a push should be made to get highway departments to stop using plastics. Even if we stop it now the problem will continue for years.
