We are expanding to the Eastern Shore of VA!
The Eastern Shore of Virginia consists of Accomack and Northampton counties on the Atlantic coast of Virginia. This beautiful 70-mile stretch of beach community is a part of the Delmarva Peninsula and is separated from the rest of Virginia by the Chesapeake Bay. Home to charming, historic seaside towns as well as the Mid-Atlantic Regional Space Authority, NASA and famed Chincoteague Island, this region is a thriving tourist destination all year long.
The NEW Sponsor-A-Road program will allow businesses and individuals to help keep the roads throughout the community litter free. Sponsored segments will be available for 1-mile sections, with litter pick up taking place throughout the Eastern Shore of Virginia. As always, the clean up will be done by our professionally-trained crews. Sponsors will receive a recognition sign that contains their full-color logo. These Sponsor-A-Road signs will be placed in highly visible locations. Prime sign locations are available on well-traveled highways such as US 13 and 175. Additional locations are also available throughout the region.
AAHLRSA launched Sponsor-A-Road in partnership with Accomack-Northampton Planning District Commission and WasteWatchers of the Eastern Shore, to keep this beautiful stretch of beach community clean and environmentally safe.
For more information on sponsoring a road on the Eastern Shore of VA contact Paige Woods, Territory Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org
Here at Adopt-A-Highway, we like to help keep you informed about all things transportation and we think these are interesting statistics for all drivers & car buyers out there!
Cars are an important part of our lives – how we get to and from work, play and school. They are an expensive component of our annual budget – but just how much does your car actually cost you each year?
The average owner will spend $8,698 in 2015 to own and operate a sedan, down 2% from 2014, according to AAA. This includes the cost of fuel, maintenance, tires, insurance, license and registration fees, taxes, depreciation and finance charges associated with driving a typical sedan 15,000 miles annually.
In the United States, a driver will to spend approximately 58 cents for each mile driven, nearly $725 per month, to cover the fixed and variable costs related to owning and operating a car. Fuel and insurance are the two largest expenses; however, depreciation makes up a big chunk of overall vehicle cost. The numbers also don’t include the cost of parking, which if you live in a city, you know they can be very expensive.
Of course, the numbers for every driver and every car will be different, but the point to note here is that the true cost to operate a vehicle is much higher than just the gas you put in it. Something to consider when you are buying a new or used car.
With locations in both Newport Beach (since 1951) and Tustin, The Crab Cooker is an institution in Southern California. Eating at The Crab Cooker is like going back in time to the days when every beach town had a place where all the locals and tourists could get great food at a moderate price. The outside of the restaurant is painted in bright red. Inside the restaurant, the decoration is a collection of unique items ranging from paintings by famous artists, theater chandeliers, pots and pans, a wrought-iron gate, nautical equipment – and a giant shark. The restaurant is known for its friendly service and casual atmosphere – you eat off of paper plates.
The Crab Cooker’s “World’s Best” Manhattan-style clam chowder is fittingly named, and when combined with a loaf of fisherman’s bread just simply cannot be beat. Other specialties include skewers of scallops, crab and lobster, oysters, crab or shrimp cocktail, salmon fillet and other fresh fish.
The company slogan – “Eat Lots A Fish!” – says it all. We at Adopt-A-Highway may be a little biased, but we suggest if you are anywhere in SoCal, a stop at The Crab Cooker is well worth it!
Each and every one of us has been somehow, either directly or indirectly, impacted by breast cancer.
- In the U.S., 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime.
- Since, 1990, early detection and treatment have resulted in a significant decline in breast cancer mortality in America.
- Today, there are more than 3 million breast cancer survivors in the U.S.
It is with these statistics in mind and to honor those near and dear to us that have courageously fought this battle that we at Adopt-A-Highway Litter Removal Service of America, Inc. have decided to make a monetary donation to the Susan G. Komen Foundation for every sponsorship sign sold starting in October.
Susan G. Komen’s mission is to save lives and end breast cancer forever by empowering others, ensuring quality care for all and energizing science to find the cures.”
Susan G. Komen’s mission is achieved through the funding of research, education, screening and treatment programs throughout the world.
Collective efforts can make a huge impact; whether it be cleaner highways or fighting breast cancer, you can make a difference. Consider sponsoring a highway today to help fund a cure for breast cancer.

It is back-to-school season, which means a little more traffic – bike, pedestrian and car. As summer draws to a close and the classroom bell rings in the new school year, 55 million children across the United States will head back to school. Of that total, AAA estimates that 13% of students walk or bike to school.
Please make it safe for children by paying extra attention when driving. According to AAA, more than 65% of drivers exceed the speed limit within school zones at peak school hours. Be responsible and remember that children may not have the skills or knowledge to pay attention to traffic. Be safe, rather than sorry by following these easy safety tips:
- Drive without distraction – no cell phones, texting or adjusting the radio
- Obey school zone speed limits
- Pick a safe location for drop-off and pick-up of children
- Stop for school buses
- Be aware and watch for bikes and give them room to navigate
Every child deserves a safe route to school – help by taking a little extra care.
