Getting dog poop cleaned up

While I was out on running today, I passed a few different types of signs to encourage folks to pick up their dog’s poop.

Some warned of a maximum fine. Some explained what could happened if kids touch it. One just said ‘bag it, bin it’. The last few stated ‘Yuk!’ in big letters, then made some fine points about the smell on a summer’s day.

The last stayed with me and would’ve made the most difference to my habits. For someone with young children the second might have. There’s not a right or wrong answer and this highlighted the difficulty in coercing a diverse population to do the right thing.

Again, it’s marketing.
