dog poo

Is it just me or does there seem to dog poo all over the pavements. I live in London and find hard to walk down the street without dodging the dog poo every 10 metres or so. The council have put up those posters but it seems to make no difference at all. My four year old son stepped in some that was camoflaged by the Autumn leaves last year and it was so unpleasant for him and for me. What can be done? My cousin thinks that traffic wardens should be given extra powers to ticket and make any dog owners they catch letting their pooches relieve themselves in the middle of the pavement without cleaning it up. Not being a dog owner myself, I fail to see why this is necessary. Is it just my street and the five mile radius of streets that I walk on regularly that are affected or is this a nationwide problem. A friend of mine said that a dog had pooed right outside the school gates of her daughters primary school. Can you imagine!
What's the answer? Free pooer scoopers from the vets? or Poo police?

I'm a dog owner and I get extremely annoyed by irresponsible dog owners who do not clean up after their dogs. I live in London and near the woods (and they provide free doggy poo bags). I always believe what goes around comes around and may the irresponsible culprits step onto poos themselves their whole lives!!
