No regard for litter

-A A +A

To the editor:
A few weeks ago, the Beacon had an editorial concerning roadside litter. It would be interesting to see how many tickets have been issued, how many people have gone to court and how many fines issued. I’m betting on none.
From the amount of litter, it’s inconceivable that law enforcement has never viewed litter being thrown. I’ve seen litter thrown in front of law enforcement cars with no reaction from the officers.
A few years ago, a county commissioner personally told me that it does no good to cite people, as our courts personnel have stated they are too busy and will not pursue.
