Auto Butt Bucket Ashtray
May 31, 2019
Pollution takes on many forms and is caused in many ways but one of the most negligent forms is people dumping their cigarettes out at traffic lights.
A great promotion for cigarette smokers is an ashtray for their cars or trucks.
Since most automobiles don't have ashtrays these days...all cigarettes butts are tossed out the window! Some reports indicate that cigarette butts are the number one litter on the side of highways. On the Keep America Beautiful website, it states that smokers blame their littering on a lack of well-placed receptacles for cigarette butts. Over 80% of smokers said they would properly dispose of their butts if suitable receptacles were available. One of the Auto Ashtrays noted above would be a start to reducing this type of pollution.
Here in Virginia, there are laws prohibiting disposal of a cigarette butt out the window:
Most people are unaware of littering fines. Section 33.1-346 of the Code of Virginia makes littering or dumping trash a Class 1 misdemeanor, punishable by up to 12 months in jail and/or a fine up to $2,500. Section 10.1-1143 of the Forestry Code makes it unlawful to throw “any lighted smoking material” from a vehicle.
