Shopping carts

Dear Editor:All over the place, abandoned shopping carts can be found. On Lakewood Boulevard, between Imperial and Firestone, I spotted at least five carts, especially around Sussman Middle School. Then along Downey Avenue, also between Imperial and Firestone, more shopping carts. I'm sure lost carts cost businesses money. It would be nice to see creative ways for the city to partner with stores for a reclamation effort. These abandoned carts make Downey look like a careless city. A public service announcement in the Patriot - in English, Spanish and Chinese - informing the public that carts should not be taken from store premises would also be useful. Dan Chantre Downey
