BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - County commissioners in the Birmingham area are considering the idea of installing hidden cameras to catch people illegally dumping trash on roadsides.

WVTM-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1ezQtdU) that the Jefferson County Commission is set to vote Thursday on a resolution to set up the hidden cameras or “game cameras” in areas where trash is commonly dumped.

Commissioner Joe Knight said littering on roadsides is a major concern because of the many problems the trash can cause. He says it can create health hazards and clog ditches, which lead to road damage when water can’t properly drain.
