If we could get people not to use the beds of their pick-ups as a trash can, then all the trash wouldnt fly out all over the roads! This is my favorite Squawk today: "If the People who didnt vote for Obama moved out of the United States, the ones that didnt would starve to death." I thought this exact same thing when I read the squawks over the weekend.

Agreed about the pick-up trucks. Folks, don't put trash back there because it flies out of the bed of your truck and all over the roads. Not cool at all. That's why the Westover median looks like a garbage dump all the time. I travel all over the state and I don't see the amount of litter on their roadways like we have on ours.

Thanks to the folks who do try to keep our community looking nice.

I don't understand why some people find it so hard to dispose of trash properly. It really isn't that hard. I joke at my nephew about having trash and bottles in his car, but at least he is not throwing them out on the street.

The problem is beyond Pick-ups. It involves deliberate littering. The law needs to be enforced, and the fines need to be higher. Plus if they can't pay the fine the community service should be based on the weight of trash they collect from a certain stretch of road, not so many hours oof walking around in the sun talking to your friends there with you. All of you with the cell phone cameras, you need to get pictures and forward them to code enforcement.

Rednecks and hillbillies all use their pickup for a trash can.

And others use anywhere that is convenient for them as trash cans. This includes tossing their trash out the window as they drive down the road or simply tossing the trash on the ground as they are walking.
