I feel very privileged to be able to drive my cars on some beautiful roads in the beautiful weather we have where I live.
The tax base is very substantial and the streets, roads, trail, streets, avenues, and bridges are very well taken care of with fantastic landscaping utilizing palm trees and native plants, to be pleasing to the eyes of motorists. Lots of workers are dedicated to cleaning them up, regularly, too. I have no complaints with the way my tax dollars are used in this regard.
This morning I woke up to another wonderful, warm morning and ate breakfast. I went for a bike ride on trails paralleling the same roads on which I drive my car. I feel grateful to be in such a paradise.
While riding, I observed various pieces of fresh litter, cups, paper, Styrofoam dinner boxes, beer bottles, cans etcetera, that were carelessly discarded along the road.
I have no doubt it will all be cleaned up in a prompt manner by the workers I see doing this frequently, but until then people still have to look at it. And the cycle will begin again with fresh trash deposits.
What bothers me the most is thinking that there are some pigs living among us that have no qualms about dumping litter wherever is convenient. I wonder if they throw garbage down in their own properties?
What is wrong with these idiots?
What can be done about this? What works?
What has been done about litter where you live that actually has helped?
