A friend's daughter was recently ticketed for throwing a burning cigarette out of her car window as she was going over the Lake Natoma Crossing/Bridge. She is required to go to court to deal with it.
Is anyone familiar with the regulation related to this? Throwing a ignited object out of a car?
No offense but I hope it's a very expensive ticket to teach her a lesson. I think it's ridiculous that people throw trash out of their cars, especially lit cigarettes that could set the area on fire.
How damn hard is it to put the cigarette out in the freakin' ashtray that comes with the car? Why do people think they can throw their trash out their car windows and think that's ok? I absolutely hate it when people throw trash out of their cars - IMO they're no better then a filthy pig when they do that.
I say don't smoke if you can't manage to keep your trash to yourself, we don't want to have to wallow in the trash these pigs throw out of the car.
Sorry, as you can tell, this is a serious pet peeve of mine. I wanna catch the punk kids who keep throwing their fast food trash bags and cups out on one of my local streets. I hate people who live like pigs and expect others to accept it.
It's disgusting to see used cigerette butts on the streets.
