Day 110 - Saturday 19th April

Justice

The obvious choice for this prompt is law and order. Every day I turn the news on and it is nearly all bad news – murders, terrorism, war and sex crime. It makes for depressing viewing. There is rarely any good news.
The thing that annoys me the most, that I think most people do not consider to be breaking the law is throwing litter on the floor. I often see children walking to school with their parents and they drop litter and their parents do not say anything. What hope is there if they are not told it is wrong to do this?
Another thing I see a lot when I am driving along, is someone chucking rubbish out of their car window. Do they think that they won’t get caught if they are on the move? The thing that really gets me is people throwing their cigarette butts out of the car window. Not only is it litter, but in the summertime, there is a really high risk of setting fire to heathland. This happens frequently where we live and hectares at a time get destroyed affecting flora and fauna for many years. People need to take responsibility for their actions.

Oh I so agree with you with regards to litter bugs and especially cigarette ends being thrown out of cars.

I agree too, we have a lovley lane near our house that we love to walk the dog along but it suffers frequently from fly tippers. Why can't people do the same as the rest of us and go to the dump with their rubbish.
