Litter Out of Control

Dear Editor,

I’ve written, along with others, about the sight of litter on our highways, but I’ve seen no response or change in this sighting.

We have animals that are lying dead on roads in our parishes that if the birds don’t get rid of them, they just decay for weeks.

Bridges are covered with piles of dirt that have converted to a growth of bushes or nearby crops.

Pieces of tire, dead animals, and dirt piles are a sight that dots our bridges and highways and have not been cleaned sometimes in years.

Trash lines our highways and is caused by residents of our area who do not respect cleanliness or have no concern for others or our state.

Have you witnessed a fine for trash discharge by law enforcement?
