While driving across the states, I was able to stop and take a few pictures of the wide variety of anti-littering signs. There are some I regret not getting and others which were on the side of some busy roadways – making it problematic for me to stop and run back to take pictures. I went after the easy shots!
I think you’ll agree that some are certainly amusing (and hopefully memorable)! So far, Texas wins for coming up with this catchy sign shown above (can’t help but love the play on wording).
A rose is a rose by any name, and illegal is the same as unlawful. Where I am currently, Virginia, the icon for litter is most intriguing. Their litter here looks, um, dated but effective (pull-tab cans haven’t been used in a looooong time).
Of course, if simple words aren’t enough to convince people to stop littering, then aiming for the wallet is the obvious next choice… these two signs hail, yet again, from Texas – where the signs for “Don’t Mess With Texas” began and were about anti-littering (not the more commonly referenced political stance).
If you find some interesting signs in your area, please feel free to contact me to send them to me. I’m making a collection of them for future use. If you have the GPS coordinates of the sign, that’s even better!
