The weather has been extreme of late and a number of states have had bushfires. I live in a bush fire area and often see people throw cigarette butts or flick ash out their car windows.
Today 50 Shades and l were travelling down to Caulfield to catch a train into the City to see an exhibition. On our way l noticed a couple of people smoking in their cars and flicking ash out the window. So l whipped the note pad and biro out and started recording car numbers and noting the time and which road we were on. We pulled up at the lights and 2 rows across l notoiced an offender. Got all her details down and then started jestering and yelling through a closed window. 50 Shades went nuts and l got a lecture about road rage.
The rest of the trip was quiet to say the least. I am now going to find out who l can report these people's details to.
Does any one know if it is illegal to do this in built up areas. Last night we were on our way to Brunsick. Just off the freeway we were stopped at lights and a bloke flicked ash out the car window. But he actually lost the top of the cigarette and it was still alight. My theory is if they do that in town, then they'll do the same thing when driving in less built up areas, it becomes a habit. We are expecting another hot day up here on Friday and something like that could be devastating.
