My name is Nadia Minikel, I attend Casterlin Elementary School. I am very concerned about the burned and abandoned cars on Alderpoint road. I have many reasons why they should be cleaned up.
My top reason why they should clean up the burnt and abandoned cars is that when they burn the cars it pollutes the air. It is not healthy to breath in all of the gasoline and other things. Also the fire fighters that go to the fire have the possibility to get cancer later in life. It isn’t good for the animals either. The animals might try to eat some of things in the burnt car and get sick.
When you drive on the road and see the burnt and abandoned cars they don’t look good. It covers up all of the beautiful scenery. I think everyone else agrees that we would rather see the trees, mountains, and fields than a burned abandoned car on the side of the road. In our pictures there might be half a burned car.
It is also waste of time and money. You could get the car fixed and drive it again or you could sell it. If you can’t afford to get it fixed take to a junkyard nearby don’t burn it. Burning cars is not a smart, good, or safe thing to do.
