Survey Finds That Ford Vehicle Drivers Are Top Litterers

LONDON, Oct. 5 (UPI) — Officials with a British campaign against littering say individuals driving Ford vehicles are the most likely to toss garbage from their cars.

Keep Britain Tidy said on the campaign’s Web site Monday a survey of more than 6,000 littering reports found Ford vehicles were involved in 1,262 instances.

Second on the list were BMWs with the vehicle brand accounting for 318 sightings of littering from automobiles. Other top vehicle brands involved in littering were Citroen with 211 instances, Audi with 180 and Honda with 100.

The specific survey dates of the month-long campaign study were not released.

Keep Britain Tidy chief executive Phil Barton said his campaign wants individuals who litter from their vehicles to face the possibility of losing a point on their driver’s license for the infraction, The Daily Telegraph reported.

“Through campaigning on this issue, we now have information that is valuable and important to our goal of influencing the lawmakers and the manufacturers to make a positive change towards ending this problem,” Barton said.
