"May you be damned!" - Locals ignore sign urging them to stop throwing litter

The sign says: Whoever throws litter beside the road - may you and your families be damned!
 
A threatening sign erected near one of Thailand biggest fruit markets has fallen on deaf ears when it comes to stopping people tossing out trash. 
 
The sign in Wang Ta Kor sub-district of Lang Suan in Chumpon says in Thai: "Whoever throws litter beside the road - may you and your families be damned". 
 
It uses the expression "chip hai"  - a common verbal swear word not normally associated with signage. 
 
Daily News went to investigate and found a mountain of stinking trash especially discarded durian husks. 
 
It is near to the largest fruit market in the south that deals in fruit for the domestic and export markets. 
 
The local authority have said that they don't have the budget and just can't cope.

I have noticed that landowners sometimes place a polite sign asking people not to dump on their land or its margins. People do seem to have some respect for that.

The worst litters are those people who can't even be bothered to slow their motorcycles down, as they sling their single-use plastic cups and bags of trash that they don't want outside their own apartment doors. Also a traffic hazard!

Rubbish encourages vermin; especially rats. Snakes sense the presence of the rats and come a'slithering. People mooch in the rubbish to find little goodies. As they are about to pocket the discarded pencil or gold ring, they step on a snake and get bitten. Some die!

We have the same problem here in the sticks of Phitsanulok. Recently, one villager got upset and put this sign up. It ain't polite but I can understand the frustration 100%...

A guy cleaning a pier in Pattaya just sweeps the trash into the water.

How many damned families are there in Thailand?

Approx 20 odd million working out about 3 to each family
