I live in Prairieville, and I’m 72 years old. I ride my bike just about everyday, because I need to.

In my rides, I accumulate different things that people release from their vehicles, bungee cords, cans, clothes etc. My problem is how trashy people are in our parish.

Then to compound the situation, whoever mows along Airline Highway cuts up all of the trash instead of picking it up before they mow. They shred it, and that compounds the situation.

Come on, people, it would look so much better if you took your trash home with you — bottles, diapers, all kind of papers and who knows what else.
