Getting a grip on Causeway horse manure issue

You’re driving along a nicely manicured highway somewhere, admiring the well kept landscape when you spot the signs.
Though they’re intermittently posted, they get your attention.
“$1,000 Fine For Littering.”
I guess they must work.
But how do they catch offenders?
I’ve always wondered about that.
What brings it up are the City of Bradenton’s efforts to gird its loins and deal with the effective removal of roadside debris of a decidedly malodorous kind.
Horse manure on the Palma Sola Causeway.
It’s been a messy ongoing problem, what with certain horse riders taking advantage of a good thing at a convenient locale like few others around Florida.
So officials from the city, state and Keep Manatee Beautiful have decided enough is enough.
They’re not going to take it anymore.
Pick up your pony’s poop!
