People that litter are scumbags!

I am totally against littering, my husband doesn't litter, I don't litter and neither does my grandchildren who live here in Birmingham, AL.

You know I wish that more people in this area would take that heed or the city of Birmingham would take her suggestion and fine the people $500 and also have them pick up a mile of waste. As you come in to Alabama, the first sign you see is "Alabama The Beautiful". And, we need to keep our neighborhoods more beautiful so more people would want to come and stay and spend their tax dollars.

Amy from Hoover
I think that the $500 fine may be a little too stiff. But I think that it would go a long way for people to maybe pick up trash. People don't like giving up their time and some people would much rather just fork over the money instead of giving up their time.
