Alderman proposes strict penalties for littering neighborhood streets

Alderman Howard Brookins of Chicago’s 21st Ward proposed an ordinance that would fine litterers up to $1,500 for tossing their trash on the streets. Are these penalties too strict? Why do people still feel the urge to put their litter in the streets? We talk with the Alderman about his motivations for the ordinance.Photo: Flickr/Luke J. Rosynek (~v~)
