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

Recommended Posts

I live in Khon Kaen. I take some side roads on the way to Big C and the road is littered with rubish. Bags, building rubish, foam pieces Boxs p, you name it. If the council put some CCTV stuff around they could record it. Make them pay. The council have to make an example to stop others. But they cannot be bothered.

I live here too. Khon Kaen seems especially littered. Or maybe I just notice it here because I live here.

Its a big problem the trash in the streets and along the roads , in my opinion there should also be a trashcan every 50 meters or so along the side of the roads and streets maybe every 25 meters now the only trashcans you can find are outside a family or 7/11

There is trash everywhere in this country. Trash Hub. It has nothing to do with not enough trash cans. Pigs are pigs. I don't litter because there are no cans. I keep it until there is one. Pigs do not!

Sign "falls on deaf ears" ??

Great sub editing

Signs are made for EYES

With a hefty percentage of the population illiterate and a matchstick man sign of a man dropping melon what do they expect will happen 🤔

Thailand's adult literacy rate is over 90%.

 

Incidentally, can you read the sign?

Trash!! The result of industry and general living. Even in so-called first world countries there is fly tipping big time. Barking (Essex) has an awful problem (won the greater London fly tipping award two years running).

 

It's all about responsibility. Starts with education at home and school. If the Thais start to love their environment, rather than just money, things could improve. Never to late to start.

Same in Jomtien

Jomtien is the sister city of Pat-trash-aya and dumpsites are part of the tourist attractions it seems, along with dangling wires, broken footpaths and leaning power poles.

Signs since when do Thais obey signs. We have a sign posted at the intersection of villiage to go onto the main road not to turn right . Ha ha they just ignore that and turn right anyway.

Whoever throws litter beside the road - may you and your families be damned!

 

How many damned families are there in Thailand?

More than the officials can cope with !
