CHP Enforcing Cig Butt Litterers!

We recently received some statistics from CHP for the enforcement of Vehicle Code 23111 which states...

"No person in any vehicle and no pedestrian shall throw or discharge from or upon any road or highway or adjoining area, public or private, any lighted or nonlighted cigarette, cigar, match, or any flaming or glowing substance."

In San Diego County in 2010, 320 people were cited for this offense by CHP. In 2009, 357 people were cited.

We all know there are a lot more people out there committing this offense. Please continue to use the hotline (877-211-2888) and let us know if you'd like to get more involved.
