Police chief gives 21-year-old driver a $575 ticket for throwing a lit cigarette out his car window

Littering is not something that you should do. It’s something we all had hammered into us at a young age, yet there are still many that litter on a daily basis.

There are signs everywhere telling individuals not to litter and to keep their trash in their car until they can safely dispose of it, but there’s a select few who still fling that coke can out of the window on the highway with no remorse.

Well, one Canadian police chief has had enough of this behavior, and now his actions are going viral.

Victoria Police Chief Del Manak was cruising behind a 21-year-old man when he spotted the driver flicking a lit cigarette out his car window.

“I actually was disgusted by it,” Manak stated. “I don’t have any time for people who carry on with this behavior.”

According to CTV News, the area’s dry conditions and fire danger hazard prompted him to immediately pull the driver over. When he questioned the driver’s actions, he was shocked.

“[I] asked him why he flicked his cigarette out and shockingly to me, he made the comment that ‘I don’t want my car to burn.’”

Manak shared the interaction and the $575 ticket on Twitter.

It wasn’t too long ago that Manak hit another driver with a fine for improperly disposing of a lit cigarette along the same stretch of road. That time the driver was fortunate and only received an $81 fine, but this time the police chief hopes others will receive the message – extinguish your cigarettes!

Had this lit cigarette ended up on some dry leaves, it could have kicked off a forest fire.
