Through this work and VerdantVigilante.com, I have learned how one man's dedication to bring attention to an act that is often overlooked as a harmless everyday-occurrance by ordinary passersby, has helped to challenge law enforcement and raise the brow of commuters and enviornmentalists, globally.
I highly-reccomend this documentary to everyone that breathes.
The arrogance of the drivers who consider Pakenham a nuisance is telling. They are just dumb takers. I don't know if mere education will be enough. Most people just grab what's available to them in the short-term. They are not genetically programmed to consider scarcity and greed is a big factor in behavior.
