Letter: War on litter continues
Wednesday, March 15, 2017
Since the last time I wrote about our roadways rendered so ugly with litter, some improvements have been made.
Cleanup crews work constantly cleaning up the mess. To whomever is responsible for this effort, I tip my hat. Unfortunately, as fast as they bag it up, it's right back in a few days.
It’s time for action. Where are all the do not litter signs I used to see? Where are all the public service announcements I used to constantly hear? A modest investment in reestablishing these efforts along with noting maximum fines on the signs coupled with strong enforcement would make a big difference.
I know this won't solve the major problems of our time but it will lift our spirits and make us feel better. That just might give us the psyche and courage to tackle bigger issues.
