Litter on the slip road coming off the m1

Dear Highways Agency,

I am writing to express my deep concern about the current state of the UK's motorways. On my daily commute I have been increasingly dismayed by the amount of litter and debris that has been left behind on roadsides and verges. This is an urgent problem that needs to be addressed as it not only ruins the aesthetic of our motorways but also results in an accident risk from obstacles thrown into the carriageway.

It uis appalling to see people carelessly discarding their rubbish in such an irresponsible manner. Recent figures from Keep Britain Tidy reveal this to be a growing problem, with the amount of litter on our roads increasing year-on-year. I urge your agency to concentrate its efforts on tackling this issue and put more resources into initiatives that will make our motorways safer and more pleasant for everyone who uses them.

  • See it it's disgusting. What we need are litter cameras not speed cameras.
