It's a social problem. I was brought up not to drop litter; and my children adopted the habit and have passed it on to the next generation. I bought my grandson a lolly at the Bluebell railway last year, and he peeled off the wrapper and said "where's the bin, grandad?"
Now we have youths (hopefully a minority) who buy junk fast food in town and then drive out through the countryside. On finishing the "meal" the tossers toss the redundant packaging out of the car onto the roadside. Unfortunately the taxpayer-funded local authority have to clear up the mess.

It's also a council problem and they need to clear it up! By my house there are fallen trees, dumped Christmas trees, overgrown bushes and lots of the usual litter. I have reported it to the council and highways and they can't be bothered!

In the countryside, any litter by the road is far more likely to have blown off the top of a lorry than it is to have been dropped by a motorist. With all the litter being carted about to landfills and incinerators, often in badly loaded lorries, it doesn't take much to blow off the top to make a noticeable mess by the side of the road.
