FILTHY motorists who wind down their window and dump rubbish on to the roads of England better beware.
Campaigners Keep Britain Tidy are taking to the highways this Bank Holiday weekend and flashing signs with the slogan, "Don't Be A Tosser" to any driver they see dumping trash.
The campaign is being backed by pop singer and actress Jennifer Ellison, who launched the drive in Camden today.
She posed among some of the more bizarre items of rubbish that have been found next to our roads - including a pantomime horse's head, false limbs and a suitcase containing a wad of cash. She also unveiled some posters hammering home the anti-litter message.
A survey into the state of Britain's motorway service station slip roads and a major study of the country's most irritating driving habits was also released today.
"Roadside rubbish is a major problem especially at holiday time, because it gives tourists the impression that we're a nation of pigs," said Alan Woods, Chief Executive of Keep Britain Tidy.
"With broken glass, big bits of plastic and lighted cig ends being dumped on our motorways, it's also only a matter of time before it causes a fatal car crash."
