Littering is one of my pet peeves. How hard is it to find a trash can or recycle your trash. I think many people are being lazy, but they also do not understand the impact of what they are doing. I think educating people on the choices that they make is one of the most effective ways to change behavior. While a large fine is a great way to deter some people from littering it may just make them not want to get caught doing it as opposed to not littering at all.
