On the way to work today it was hot and windy and dusty and yuk! During my tea break at work I watched the NEWS. I got to see footage of a fire that the fire brigade had under control in Carrum Downs. I believe the NEWS reported that a house had been burned? You could see people trying to protect their houses with water hoses. They also showed the water bomb helicopter doing its job. It was 40 degrees celcius at 2pm they said.
Then, as I waited at a set of traffic lights in by car on the way home I witnessed something unbelievable. A guy in a convertible car was smoking and he threw the cigarette into the grassy medium strip, I could see the red point on the stub still alight. he took off at seed in the opposite direction to me. I could not report him for the offence, but I sure would have. What if he does it somewhere else? What if it causes a fire that causes a family to loose their house? Or worse..their life?
You just cannot help DUMB!
