Tossing Cigarette buts out the car window

There is nothing worse then seeing smokers tossing cigerette butts out their car windows.  It is bad enough that we have to smell the stench from the car ahead of us much less have to look at the mounds of butts on the road.  Plus the damage from fires started by this practice.

Smokers should keep their car windows shut and their butts in an ash tray

I have to agree. I ...

I have to agree. I thought I was the only one that noticed the stench coming from smokers in cars in front of me. Tossing butts out the window also causes major problems in our rivers and streams. Smokers should have a little respect for others.

I agree with this totally. ...

I agree with this totally. I have another issue with smokers who immediately light up as soon as they walk out of the door, causing the unsuspecting non-smoker to inhale carbon monoxide polluted air exhaled by the inconsiderate person. Then returning to the building they have to take the last puff and throw the butt on the ground. Not only have you witnessed littering, you have walked into the building smelling like cigarette smoke and you have 4 hours left to the end of your shift. You are sitting at your desk smelling like smoke and tasting the foul after math in your mouth.

Oh yeah I agree with this ...

Oh yeah I agree with this also. Im always paranoid that one day its going to get lodged somewhere under my car and ignite my car!!!! Quit throwing your butts out the window!!! What if other people have their window open and it goes into ours??? I loathe smoking so even if you are in front of us we can smell it coming into the vents. Do these people think smoke has no smell? Sometimes I wonder.....They stink to high heavens too and act like "what I smell bad"??? YEAH YOU DO!!!

You know when you're ...

You know when you're stopped at a red light with a lot of other cars and the guy next to you is hanging his cancer stick out the window? I've always wanted to hop out of my car, run up to him, snatch his cancer stick, smash it into his vehicle then go about my merry way. When they drop it out the window it's all I can do not to toss it back into their car.

If you don't like it then ...

If you don't like it then do something about it! Write your senator or congressman about it. In CA, if you throw your butt out the window and you get caught, you get a littering ticket, and get slapped with attempted arson. God forbid you hit anyone with it because then it is assult. I have a friend who threw his butt out and hit a CHIPS on a motorcycle. He got taken in and to this day I am sure is still paying all the fines. I tell you what, he quit smoking after that! But instead of complaining, get something going that can at least start to change it.

You're lucky in ...

You're lucky in California. Here in Ohio I have seen Cops flip cigarettes out a car window.

I so agree. I bought my ...

I so agree. I bought my mid-life-crisis convertible. God forbid I'd want to put the top down. If I wanted to inhale the noxious fumes I would smoke myself. I hate the people that hang the cig out the window and only have it in their cars long enough to take a hit. If you're stuck in traffic roll up your f*&%ing window and keep the smoke in your own car ! AARRGGHH

I don't smoke either, but ...

I don't smoke either, but I have another reason that I hate this. When it's night time and someone throws one out the window, the fire from the butt startled me because it didn't see it coming and so I started to swerve to avoid it because I didn't know what it was. All I saw was a small red fire like thing bouncing on the interstate. It scared the crap out of me. Once I passed it I realized what it was and I was so pissed!!

A but scared the crap out of

A but scared the crap out of you? And you swerved on an interstate highway to avoid it? You haven't been driving very long I take it.

 

In addition..

Ever walk into a restaurant when the wind is in the right direction and get a whiff of those things they throw cigarette butts into??  Bleh!!  If that isn't enough to spoil your appetite!!!
