Filthy litterers slammed by locals in Chiang Mai as ignored sign says it all!
Picture: Daily News
CHIANG MAI: -- A sign on a roadside says it all about the flagrant disregard for the law about littering.
The sign in our picture says: "Absolutely no littering or burning of rubbish in this area - or else. Offenders will be fined 2,000 baht".
But despite the sign there is a 100 meter stretch of stinking rubbish all along the road. There is everything from plastic bags to discarded toilets, foam to masonry, reported Daily News.
Now the exasperated locals in Nong Hoi and Tha Sala sub-districts of Muang district, Chiang Mai are demanding action.
Nong Hoi spokesperson Bonkot Benmart said that their authority had put up the sign and were doing their best to stop the littering but to no avail.
People just turned up at night to add more rubbish to the stinking mess.
Bonkot said that the matter had now been passed up the chain of command to Chiang Mai city authorities to get some help to stop the littering.
