Indiana State Police crack down on cigarette littering | VIDEOIndiana State Police are cracking down on people who do not properly dispose of their cigarettes or other lit tobacco products as part of an effort to prevent fires during the state’s drought.
My upstate New York county has a 90 day burning ban because of the extremely dry conditions.
2 days ago we just had a large fire on the side of one of our expressways.
The cops speculate it was caused by some one tossing a cigarette butt out of their window
It took a while to put out the fire,but could have caused a crash as well as injury to the fire fighters.
So I do agree with the big fines if any one is caught flicking their butts into a dry area.
