Litter bugs could lose ability to drive
AMITE- The parish could hold drivers licenses hostage if people do not pay their litter tickets, the parish president told a WBRZ news partner in Tangipahoa Parish recently.
Parish President Gordon Burgess told ActionNews17.com, people would lose their license if they don't pay the fine.
Cameras have been catching litter bugs in the act in an effort to deter out-of-control littering in the parish. Littering is so bad, it costs the parish $200,000 a year to control. Trash has built up on the side of roads in some places.
"We're gonna clean up our parish whether the people like it or not," Parish President Gordon Burgess said previously.
