This morning while traveling southbound on I-93 near exit 22 I observed seven state workers picking up trash along the highway. How shameful that so many people have no consideration for the appearance of our roads. I don't know if it's our residents or visitors who are littering but in any case our State Police should be out issuing tickets to these people who are littering on our beautiful roads.

The penalty for littering in New Hampshire is $288, let's start issuing tickets and collecting fines from these trash dumpers in order to help pay for the state workers spending their time cleaning up the roads.
