Bottles Of Urine Litter The Roadways
Laredo is the number one port of entry which means thousands of trucks travel through the gateway city on a daily basis. And it's something they're leaving behind that is angering residents.
"I've seen them all over the road and on the highways too."
Victor Soto is talking about the bottles full of urine that line the streets.
"Truckers should stop throwing them around because it's really gross and to keep our community clean."
More and more bottles full of urine are piling up around the trucking companies in Laredo which is not only leaving a bad sight...but also a bad smell.
One man we spoke to suggests a fining system be implemented for any trucker seen dumping bottles full of urine.
"They should give them a ticket like $50 or something to make them think twice before doing it again."
Although we found the bottles near the Killam Industrial park, a truck driver we spoke to insists they are not to blame.
"I've never seen truckers do it."
Roy Valensuela says he respects nature and does not litter.
"No I don't do that. I got a trashcan and I always got bags if I buy stuff I keep them here in my truck."
For his fellow truckers that do toss out their trash, Valensuela says there's no excuse.
"Anywhere we go there are trashcans."
