Shame and punishment in order for litterbugs

Dear editor,

Seeing litter on the side of the street is one thing but actually seeing it being thrown from a car window is shocking!

Dear editor,

Seeing litter on the side of the street is one thing but actually seeing it being thrown from a car window is shocking!

I remember throwing out a candy wrapper from my window when I was a kid. My dad pulled over in the 7-Eleven parking lot and made me pick up 10 pieces of garbage.

I can tell you, I never did that again!

I honked my horn at this kid on the corner of Aberdeen Heights and Lerwick but was ignored as he drove away, leaving his litter on the road of this nice neighbourhood.

I followed him to the local high school and got my daughter to snap a photo of his SUV.

You would think in a time of educated children on the issues of our environment, our overflowing landfills and educational recycling programs, that the thought of throwing out garbage onto our community streets would never enter into their adolescent minds.

I think a little shame and punishment is in order! Someone needs to hand a garbage bag to this young man and make him pick up garbage all along Lerwick.

Karen Bezaire,

Comox
