Writer asks about fines for littering
Thinks if fines of $500 or more for littering were imposed and made public, roadsides would be cleaner
Click on headline for complete commentary
By Brenda McCoy Harvey
I know, living 2 miles from the square must give people just the right amount of time to consume their burgers, fries, tacos, candy, soft drinks, beer. etc. and throw the trash into my yard, driveway and in the ditch in front of my house.
There has been so much discussion on this trash on the sides of all the roadways around here.
I must have gotten wrong information somewhere, because, I thought there was a fine for littering.
I have never heard of anyone being fined for this??? I think if the first ten or so people caught and fined $500 each for throwing out their trash were made public, very soon people would stop doing this!
I can't understand anyone doing this anyway. Do we have no pride in how our town and county looks? Maybe a hefty fine would help people care.
In traveling to Europe, I have remarked about how clean the country was. No trash anywhere.
We are surely smart enough to stop this.
Thanks for letting me rant and get this off my heart and mind.
