Went from Mandeville to Slidell today. I started to notice litter along the roadside. I decided to time how often I passed at least 1 piece of visible litter. For the next 20 miles straight, I passed at least 1 piece of visible litter *PER SECOND* - sometimes more - for a solid stretch of 20 miles.

Billy Nungesser, Tourism Czar - are you listening? Cleanup this shithole they call Louisiana!

You counted over a thousand pieces of litter?

Did you even watch the frickin road at all?

I’m just glad you did something like this instead of scrolling through your phone and endangering lives.

It’s okay. I was traveling south on I-110 through north Baton Rouge yesterday. A guy dumped a shite ton of trash out the passenger window. The driver looked like he was trying to empty everything in the car. The car was likely stolen. BR PD was right there next to me and didn’t do shite.

What OP is describing isn't hard to do while driving safely. Especially with the amount of trash on the road.

The semis that park on entrance and exit ramps dump their trash all over the place. I hate that, so I wake them all up when I drive by in the morning.

Notice the nice little neat stack on that pile of tires eastbound right past the 190 exit?

Why aren't the prisoners picking up trash on the highways anymore?

Sad part is it’s probably one of the cleaner stretches of highway

I actually drove that way this morning. There was a Coastal Environmental Services truck with an improperly covered load. The wind was blowing white plastic grocery bags out of the top of the truck.

We want to, but the man wont allow it. If the Sheriff would pay us prisoners a living wage this wouldn’t be an issue.

Impossible unless people start having a little bit of pride and stop littering

As much as I hate Alabama ( sports) it is such a clean state. I’m not sure how they keep all the trash picked up but Louisiana could take a lesson

Knock on their door with some McDonald's and ask them kindly to repect mother earth and recycle.


Nah, I just drive by honking.
