Every time I cross the Oak Street Bridge heading south into Richmond, I can’t help but notice the loads of litter strewn on both sides of Highway 99. What is wrong with people?!! All this garbage just doesn’t appear there on its own, nor will it disappear on its own! Why do people no longer seem to care about their city? Who throws out milk jugs, plastic bags with garbage, and many other things!! Who is going to clean up the mess?
If you see someone toss out litter, take down their licence number and let the police know. It’s time these litter bugs learn that it’s not okay to just dump their garbage out vehicle windows.
Will all this litter be cleaned up? Perhaps if we catch the culprits and make them clean it up, just maybe, they’ll get the message that not everyone enjoys seeing their litter along the side of the road.
I hope you publish my concerns in your newspaper. I can only wait and see if it will do some good.
