As a rider, why dont any area law enforcement agency enforce this/the law ??๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿš”๐Ÿš“๐Ÿ˜Ž

Folks on Celt Rd. should rethink where they blow their grass… jus sayin.

I say, give a warning โš ๏ธ and then ticket the next time. Elderly people use to do it and still do.

May want to tell just about every homeowner on Amicus, Vdot and about 20 other places as well

VDOT leaves the roads looking like a pasture. Be careful.

Maybe somebody should tell VDOT this

GODAM CLIBBINS TOOK MY BEST HOSS BACK IN ‘72

CLIBBINS

Can't blow grass in the road but vdot is tar and chipping roads like it's still 1975 ๐Ÿ˜‚

Leaves are worse!!!

Yes on the Celt road. VDOT contracted mowers left grass all over the highway when they cut last week.

The ones that cut the grass don the roads do it all the time and it is a whole lot worse than what private citizens does with their mowers

Maybe ticket the person doing it. See the house where the grass is and go ticket who did it. Down Fredericksburg Rd and Dundee Rd it's getting really bad.

I thought it was illegal to blow it into the road. Becomes very slippery and on a sharp curve could cause a bad accident.

Greene police kidnapped my babies idk why they are missing from the house where they live over someone else house idk. They outside saying they played with my 7 year old from school Nathanael Greene Primary School missing in Culpeper with Alvina holding my babies back and they wouldn't let me get my kids with a final court order. They did something to my babies threw the courthouse that I'm not suppose to be in. They did something to my son from school idk where he is at.

A lot of grass blown onto roads. Very dangerous. Be consiterate, blow your mower clippings the other way, not 0onto roads. Thank you.

I live in the desert.

Makes me want to drive by with a sprayer full of round up

Make those first two rounds with the discharge from your mower directed away from the road. This is what I always did when mowing the church property in NJ. Better yet, plug off the discharge and make it mulching.

Evidence is gone after several vehicles have passed

VDOT kicks up whole tree limbs...lol

I thought that this was a law.

And why doesn’t the sheriffs department remind people that’s it is a violation of Virginia state law to blow grass onto the road

Then someone needs to tell that to vdot because they mowed and throw it all in the road

As a former biker, I have one question. How is grass clippings any worse than wet leaves in the fall?

What name are they going by?

Why? Are they not an actual company? Are they not licensed and insured? Have they not provided the services people paid for? Or is there just some reason you don’t like them and you decided to use the Facebook page of a public service to bash the public for no reason?

They provided literally no information with this post ๐Ÿซก great job ghost busters, who are the guys? What’s the name of the company? I’m sure they don’t have a license if you’re posting about it?? i hate it here lol

Thank you for the information.

What is the name they are going by ?

Wait... Why? Are they doing a bad job?

Shouldn't you ask to see a Virginia contractors license and then validate it my confirming it is active? Just a bit of advice

Thank you!

Then how about enforcing it?

Okay I have to comment... I live in Stanardsville corporate on 230and it's 25mph...25mph...25mph, all day and night any weather any given day trucks cars semi's motorcycles all speed in excess of 55 mph...55mph...55mph, I asked the sheriff several years ago to see about signage like Earlysville and countless other towns to slow traffic down... I asked for patrols and spoke directly to an officer on patrol radar sitting outside my house if he was actually going to pull anyone over, this as dozens of vehicles sped past at that time he evaded the question and drive off after my beratement made him uncomfortable...yet...yet I am pulled over in my yard mowing the lawn and spinning the mower around shot a bucket of grass in the road...the whole a neighbor purposefully aims as much grass in the road as possible the cop toots his horn and waves priority is not cohesive and as for speeding I several times followed an officer at 5 am I couldn't catch up on 33 at 85mph he turns into Exxon for a coffee... drive like hell you'll get there just as the cops do...

Can you do something about driving and texting, I've seen some real dumbasses out there this week and school is starting with all these kids out be the roads waiting to be picked up, could be dangerous. . . . .

There were 2 of them a couple days ago on Ford ave. A black one and a spotted one. Small pigs.

Yep. Saw it near Sneads Garage yesterday afternoon.

It’s in locust lane right now

We had 2 potbelly pigs in our yard Monday evening.

That's how you know you live in the country... ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ

Is his name "Bacon sammich"?

Sounds so hillbilly ๐Ÿ˜‚, I love it!

Maybe the pig is like the Rats that we have in the county working with the Sheriffs Department

This whole experience has traumatized my daughters and me as well and Greene county has made me feel like I can never trust any man again because men can do what ever they want and face no consequences. It has also made me very wary of law enforcement and DSS, people who are supposed to be there to help and keep people safe. I feel like the case was not taken seriously and I have been punished for the past year for speaking out and asking for help. I pray that he doesn't gain the trust of another woman, be allowed to watch her children because he makes himself look like such an amazing dad, and then take advantage of the mother and children's trust again to hurt another child.

Except my daughter did not have rights. Her rapist did not have a trial at all. As her mother I did not recieve the results of the perk kit...infact after the results were found I was not even informed that the results were found. But on my child's medical record it says sexual assault and my 4 year old has been telling me what happened for the past year because she witnessed it, but Greene would not order a forensic interview.

#justiceforjasmine nonverbal kids deserve justice too.

Greene has a wonderful VWP!

Well done to the best sheriff's operation in Virginia!

Absolutely

Coming from Greene County… I have a lot of doubts for Greene sheriffs department.. lmao practice what you preach

Sheriff's department kidnapped my babies idk what they doing they said they playing with my kids ass outside the house idk where my kids are at. They are with someone idk Melissa Smith Danielle Nicholson Brianna Myers Morgan cox was in the house and they was in the courthouse. Idk what they done to my babies I have a final court order and they kidnapped my babies threw the courthouse gave me visitation and I haven't seen my babies since February since the live in the house November affidavit and January affidavit. Missing from the house in another county

How do you think my 4 year old feels? I was told not to let her dad have any contact with her for almost a whole year because they were supposedly investigating and he could have been a threat to her...but then there was custody court and Greene said "OK he gets virtual visitation. " So now sometimes she asks to talk to him so I let her....but then sometimes she changes her mind and says "No I don't want to talk to my dad because he hurt my sister." Meanwhile I owe my lawyer $1600 right now and already paid thousands for both a custody lawyer to make sure my child's rapist did not get custody, and also a lawyer to appeal a founded disposition of inadequate supervision. I am the one who brought my daughter to the hospital when I found blood in her diaper. I am the one who did not allow any contact as I was told....but I am the one who faced all the consequences for what the father of one of my children did to my other child...a child who he helped raise for 10 years of her life.

Right now someone is probably trying to figure out what they can charge me with for continuing to use my right to the first amendment and speaking up for my child who has no voice.

James Howard, at my state appeal you said "Correct me if I'm wrong, and I know you will." Well guess what buddy I did Correct you. You were wrong and you are the wrong person to be the head of Greene county DSS let alone any government position. And I won't stop until you Correct your actions.

Did you think I would stop sticking up for my child just because you tried to belittle me? Real funny! I feel so sorry for people like you who are so uneducated that you think children with disabilities don't know what is happening and don't deserve respect. For a mind to be so shallow, let alone the minds of 2 whole departments is truly a pitty. I'm glad I no longer live in a place with people so dense.

It has been a year and 6 months since my daughter was raped by her step father and I am the only one who has faced any consequences by having to spend every extra penny I have to pay off a lawyer to clear my name for allowing the father of my child to watch her and her big sister... The state determined that I did nothing wrong after all this time, but nothing has been done about the fact that someone I trusted because he showed me time and again that he was a good dad, betrayed both my children and myself by raping the child he was being paid by medicaid to watch.

I recommend that if your child ever has a forensic exam, when the hospital asks if you are OK with the perk kit going to Greene county because that is where you reside, you say no. I regret not saying no and asking for another county to get possession of the perk kit.
