    This has pissed me off for the longest time...If you want to slowly kill yourself thats fine, second hand smoke, debate if it kills those around you, but why the HELL DO YOU NEED TO THROW THE BUTTS OUT THE WINDOW WHILE DRIVING??????!!!!!!!!!!! Use the damn ash tray.
    I am not a tree hugger, could care less if you cut one down, hopefully it will land on a cat, but do they think they vaporize once they hit the ground? BTW I also feel the same way about gum, their wrappers, napkins, etc. Thoughts?

    littering is definately bad - the worst is when people throw whole mcdonalds bags full of trash out the window like it's nothing. It boggles the mind.

    To keep your ashtray clean so when you sell you car you can then claim it was owned by a non-smoker.

    I agree 100% ! I go crazy with people littering. Maybe because my first job was at a burger king picking up trash and gum.

    I have to learn to control myself when I watch people littering I have almost been in a few fights over it but it drives me nuts.

    I was at Summit Point a few years ago and watched a guy clean out his Mercedes with tons of trash then pass a trash can to throw the garbage in the woods. After he walked away I noticed he left his car unlocked so I picked up all of the garbage he threw and any other trash I could find and spread it all over the inside of his car.

    I hope he is not on this website

    Cheers

    If those people don't mind littering their bodies with that garbage, it only follows that they wouldn't think twice about littering their surroundings. Slobs.

    1) It's a lowlife habbit to toss butts out the window.

    2) I live in an area with a lot of trees. When I see a driver toss a butt out the window, I write down their plate # and the time in case there is a fire. I get really torqued when people do this.

    Also, I HAVE noticed that new cars do not come with ashtrays!

    I toss them out the window because the smell of a snuffed out cigarette is nasty, and I don't like to soil my ashtray with them. I have my cell phone plugged in and so my ashtray is in the glovebox.

    I love it when someone is tailgating me when I'm ready to toss my cigg... sucka!

    But basically I do it because it's more convenient for me and I don't really care what other drivers think of that.

    Sounds like we have more than a few pissed off smokers here. They can tax us, they can tell us where we can't smoke about all we left is flicking our butts out the window. Maybe when people stop letting their dog pee on my lawn I would think about not flicking. The other day I saw someone walking their dog and it did this on my front lawn and when I said something they said don't worry he is only peeing. I really felt like walking up to their house whipping it out and saying don't worry I am only peeing

    I hope that one day steven, you are riding a motorcycle and a *** end is thrown from a car and lands in either your 'visor up' helmet or unzipped leathers.
    It is most unpleasant ..... and it certainly brought out the mr. nasty in me - ask the driver of a red ford escort c/w dented rear wing, somewhere in north wales.
    cheers for now, d

    When I have thrown mine out the window I will ALWAYS make sure no one is behind me otherwise I will shove it in an old pop can. But putting butts in the ashtray make the entire car stink up.

    If local government is so strapped and looking for ways to make more $$$ why not fine these polluters? That'd stop it pretty quick.

    I dont target motorcycles, what i mean in a roundabout way is that there is not much we can do these days without some law coming out saying it is wrong, i have even been arrested for pissing in an unlit alley where nobody can see me no toilets around for miles, what should i do piss myself is that allowed these days, what can we do these days without somebody moaning about it, it annoys people that i chuck a butt out the window, so what there is a lot more in this world that annoys me, just look at the news these days, and still some MORON worries about *** butts, for god sake moan about something that has some meaning to life.

    You toss your trash out the window and I am the MORON....You can not cure cancer, it is outside your abilities, but you can stop doing something that you are directly responsible for...If you need a law to be told something is wrong, something as simple as this, then you sir have some serious issues...And BTW have a nice day.

    This drives me nuts there is a reason for an ashtray in your car and its not to hold your cell phone, change, ect. It is for your Butts. Bring back the car trash bags from the late 80's early 90's I remember those little bags that used to go over your lighter. What happend to them?
