In Hawthorne, the constant wind searches relentlessly for Safeway shopping carts that are not safely secured in their corrals. Finding one, the wind scoots the cart into a ditch. Sometimes the wind shoots a cart across the highway into the ditch next to the airport. I would not like to see a cart zipping across in front of me as I travel the highway, would you? Imagine the chaos if a cart were caught under the wheels of a semi.
After all, carts that have to be repaired or replaced add to the overhead of a store, the cost of which is passed on to us standing at the register.
