If the butt starts a fire that fine goes up to the cost of putting out the fire. Of course the only way to catch someone would be to have dashcam evidence or something similar.

Much the same as you reporting "this grey car with license plate # was doing 60 in a 30 zone" to the police................IF, and that's a big IF for the police to even show up and use your eye-witness statement. If they do and contact the alleged speeder.........his answer just has to be "nope, wasn't me" and it is a dead issue.


So what you are saying is road side fires are free criminal act.... sorry about your burnt down home hope you had insurance. We do have video evidence no one is willing to charge the person

Look up the definition of potential

Did I say anything about where butts are thrown in my post, reread my post before quoting


Sure .. I'll look that up .

What I'm saying is that while I agree anyone who throws ANYTHING on the ground is a litterbug , the "potential" is more about human emotion these days rather than the physics ... Any thing can happen in the minds of the paranoid ..

The fire on Knox was started by a butt.... fire in Osoyoos in a cedar hedge was from butt

Has nothing to do with being paranoid
