Cherry on the top!

After seeing the item on the local news this week about litter beside the A38 in Devon, on Thursday, February 16, I drove from Okehampton along the A30 towards Exeter, eventually turning off at Tedbury. 

I normally see all sorts of litter beside this road but on this occasion I  kept a special lookout. I counted 28 tyre rims, obviously from lorry tyres, various items of plastic, and one large load of lengths of timber. 

Every time I travel the A30 to Cornwall I notice the care taken with the sides of that highway. I feel very sad each time I drive the Devon A30 seeing the regular sight of dumped rubbish. Potholes are bad enough on all our side main roads, but this is just the cherry on the top!
