The Charleston area’s newest sport is to see how fast people can drive so the trash in the back of their truck/trailer will blow out, so they don’t have to take it to a dumpster.

That includes pickups, towed trailers and the cities of Charleston, North Charleston, James Island, etc., whose trash trucks are partly covered on the roads.

No wonder this area is trashy looking. Good thing the area is not up for a clean cities award.
