Two things really bother me. The first is people in $60,000 cars who don't seem to know how to use a direction indicator. Not much I can do about that except employ defensive driving.
The second is people who don't pick up after their dogs. Ugh, that really bothers me. But I read recently about a solution. It seems a condominium association in New Jersey has initiated a program to record the DNA of dogs that live there. When someone steps in or otherwise observes a culprit who has not picked up his puppy poop on the pedestrian path, it goes to a lab, where the perp can be identified. The first fine is $250 and the second is $1,000.
It wouldn't take long for people to realize that the cost of those little bags is a real bargain. And seriously, it would help prevent a health problem.
So when do we start to make Hilton Head a healthier place to live? Check out www.pooprints.com. I'll be the first in line to register my dog's DNA.
Never miss a local story.
