    How to keep the city clean??????

    What is wrong with people? Why do people throw litter out of their car windows? Is the city their rubbish bin? How does one educate these litter bugs?

    Because opening the door while the car is moving is pretty dangerous
    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.

    Yes, if someone opens the door while driving winds easily come through the opening window and there is a chance of accident. So it's better not to open it while driving.

    I suspect this wasn't the answer Heating was looking for...

    Excellence is not a skill, it is an attitude. If all humans lived like animals and devoured only what they needed without destroying the environment, the world would be a better place. Although I have to admit that there are despicable animals that live like humans...

    People should be punished for the things you really describe here. Like for example something like that road cams should really be implemented everywhere simply and it all goes both ways. I do not see how it will be fixed in any time soon.

    Thumbs up Tips to keep the city clean

    1) Take your scraps and utilize it for your plants
    2) Use fabric bags
    3) Learn to re-use old bottles
    4) Always carry a recycled paper bag
    5) Segregate waste at home in 3 separate bins like biodegradable, recyclable and others
    6) At last, bath daily and clean yourself, which is the most important thing to do before you do these all.

    I had been to King Williams Town, South Africa last month and reserved my stay in the Intaka Guest House. I saw the city is so neat and clean. I asked some local people and got to know those steps. Cleanliness is a very powerful habit. If you don't believe then try to live for one week in garbage like room and a cleaned room, you could feel the fluctuations of your energy level.

    Could it be because most people are right handed and the driver sits on the right side of the car?

    I am left handed so I would always hold my cigarette (which i gave up in 1995) or my cooldrink in my left hand whilst driving. The natural thing for me to do was to use the ashtray or toss the can on the passenger floor.

    Although some people are willful I do think that most do it absent mindedly (like a bad habit) because their right elbow is already resting on the door frame.

    ...now that is certainly the strangest thing I have ever read in relation to recycling. I would love to see you explain that to all the homeless living on the streets of LA.
