I was driving along today behind a car when I noticed the driver was smoking. So what...their car, their business. That was until they tossed the smoldering butt of their cigarette onto the street. It irked me, but what can you do? And then it happened again!
Why is it that perfectly respectable people find that it is okay to litter if it is a cigarette butt?
I doubt that any of these fine, upstanding (I suppose) citizens would ever consider tossing a finished soda can out the window, but they think nothing of tossing out a burning piece of paper wrapped around a filter? Never having been a smoker, all I can figure is that they don't want it burning in their car and causing litter INSIDE.Gosh, they would have to pick it up. Why not have the county/city/state bear the cost of cleaning up all of those nasty cigarette butts?
Guess what? CIGARETTE BUTTS ARE LITTER!
Please think twice before you toss that little piece of burning paper out the window next time...
I think it is time to bring back the crying Indian Chief (I know I am dating myself). I doubt anyone raised after spending their childhood watching that wants to litter! If you've never seen the ad, here is the YouTube link:
