    A Chicago alderman has proposed a 1500-dollar fine for littering. Perhaps concerned that the fine won’t be enough of a deterrent, he’s thrown in the option of impounding violators’ cars.

    Fed up with the food wrappers, dirty diapers, and used condoms scattered around his neighborhood, a Chicago alderman has proposed a 1500-dollar fine for littering.

    Perhaps concerned that the fine won’t be enough of a deterrent, he’s thrown in the option of impounding violators’ cars.

    According to him, the current fines range between 50 and 100 dollars, and he is aware that the increase is excessive. He just wants to get people’s attention.

    His ordinance is scheduled for committee consideration soon.

    While taking note not to litter in Chicago, think about writing yourself a reminder not to swear in Middleborough, Massachusetts.

    Last summer the town instituted a public profanity fine. There was once a law against it, but it seems they had trouble enforcing it.

    Now those spouting off a curse or two will have to pay for their iniquity – 20 dollars to be exact.

    The town’s problem had gotten so bad that it was causing local businesses to suffer. Old people and parents with young kids alike said shopping in the profanity laden downtown area was just too uncomfortable.
