I could see why some councils were reluctant to follow his luminous lead - but it now appears that pavement spray painting is the tactic of choice for many local authorities in the UK.
At last, direct action by the public! If we cannot trust our elected representatives to act, then the people will!
I was in Crayford today, which neighbours the borough of Bexley. You will remember my post, where I showed the efforts being made by Bexley coucil. Clearly, this is not replicated in neighbouring Dartford.
Therefore, the people have acted and I saw the image below, which had been spray painted onto a pavement.
The people have spoken. There is no sign here about burglary or robbery. Nothing about serious violence. Let the government wake up and listen! "C" is not for "Crime" but rather "Canine Fouling"!
I feel moved by this outpouring of public support for our cause!
All visitors to this site will undoubtedly have spent much of their time spotting "dog fouling" signs. This is a good use of time.
Indulging in this meaninful exercise, I was pleased to see that Bexley council has decided to avoid the cost of affixing signs to lamp posts. As the new range of "anti-graffiti" style road signs are rolled out, Bexley council is including a logo as shown below.
Just look at this sign and the impact it has. Eventually, everywhere you walk in Bexley, there will be a visual reminder of the need to "clean it up". I am pleased to see this particular sign on a personal level. I have friends in Barnehurst and would hate to think that they live in a toilet.
Brighton is also coming along. They have chosen the option of placing a combined invitation on their litter bins.
This could, however, be a bit confusing. For example, does it mean that I should collect dog faeces from everywhere just to take them to the centre of Brighton? Who knows? Perhaps a solution would be to gather up the dog faeces from Bexley, take it to Brighton and fill the bins. That way, everybody wins! In the meantime, seal your letterbox!
If we all followed Mr T's Commandments then the world would be a better place.
This dog has the audacity to to emerge from the hedge (guess what it was doing!) and then leave a massive skid mark down the road.
I can only assume that this is as a result of deliberate training by the owner.
Where is the government when this is going on?
