    Drivers who litter, be warned

    Just saw this on the Beeb. Such a great piece of technology and about time those scum that throw rubbish out of their cars get caught.

    I was out cycling the weekend and the amount of rubbish all over the countryside is an absolute disgrace.

    Good.

    Though they should do it on some high streets.

    I remember watching in Manchester as some guy parked on a main road, collected all his rubbish from his car and then threw the rubbish on the pavement.

    I was like that as the waste bin was less about 3 metres away.

      Littering winds me up so much because there is just NO excuse. I've never once, in years of travelling, camping, hiking, running, cycling etc had cause to litter. It's just the height of selfishness - I'd happily support a £1000+ fine for it.

        I think mandatory litter picking would be more effective for repeat offenders.

          Excellent. Can't understand why these barstewards do it, hardly a problem to take it home and bin it.

            Plenty of bins as well. Excellent move.

            You just walk along a high street and watch the group in front father then son then daughter discard their sweetie wrappers.

            I would prefer they worked on people driving with mobiles & tailgating its rare that litter kills.

              Now pair that up with drive through fast food places printing reg numbers on the packaging and we'll be getting somewhere.

                I did a 5 mile walk yesterday with a bag of dog poop in one hand. Ended up driving all the way back home with it. Really gets my goat these people who just leave them tied to the branches of a tree like some fairy's going to come along whilst we're all asleep.

                  I am having big issues with this at side of my house with a path that literally goes no where. I mean you've done the hard part by picking it up and bagging it.

                  I look forward to your all knowing and likely sarcastic and unhelpful reply.

                    Have you campaigned for a bin to be put on the path?
