City of Melbourne have announced a change to the fines for littering smokers, with the fine going up to $234 for throwing away a lit cigarette.
Smokers or non-smokers, it just staggers me that some people are such slobs.
Regularly, I see footy-goers at the Parkside Edgewater oval (Maribyrnong) rock up to watch a local footy game, sit in their cars eating, and throw their food wrappers and bottles and other crap on the ground afterwards and just drive off. Absolutely breathtaking.
What the hell are they all thinking? Do they leave crap around their own homes as well?
Someone comes along in the following week and cleans it all up (probably at the expense of the local ratepayers), and then at the next game a week or two later, they do it again.
I mean, WTF?
(Dear City of Maribyrnong, if your officers want to earn some fine revenue for littering, Parkside Edgewater during a game is the place to be. But take back-up.)
Maybe it’s time to re-use those old 80s adverts that treat people like
Or otherwise, perhaps the Doctor can do something about it.
