Fol­low up on lit­ter­bug

Townsville Bulletin - - Letters Extra -

‘DIS­GUSTED’ from Ayr in his text to the ed­i­tor tells of while driv­ing to Townsville, a semi-trailer driver was throw­ing his rub­bish on to the road hit­ting his and other ve­hi­cles (TB, De­cem­ber 20).

The au­thor said that de­spite his blast­ing on his horn, the semi-trailer driver con­tin­ued to throw lit­ter on the road.

I hope ‘Dis­gusted’ from Ayr that you did not just stop at blast­ing your horn and send­ing a text mes­sage to the ed­i­tor about what you had wit­nessed. I would have hoped that you got the truck’s num­ber and gave it to the po­lice, and that you would also be pre­pared to go to court as a wit­ness against that lit­ter­bug if your in­for­ma­tion comes to charges be­ing laid.

Be­cause un­til peo­ple such as th­ese are caught and pros­e­cuted, we will con­tinue to have filthy lit­ter­bugs lit­ter­ing our roads. BRUCEDOU­GLAS,

Kirwan.
