Our post yesterday on the Lexus driver who rolled down her window to toss her cigarette butt on Chapel Hill's Franklin Street is closing in on 1,100 reads.
We've also received a dozen comments. Here are just a sample:
"The NC DOT has a Swat-a-Litterbug program where you can report such incidents. Check out the link at: http://tinyurl.com/5ro6hb
Personally, I think that all litterbugs should be required to
participate in an adopt-a-highway program as part of a mandated
community service program to pick up the cigarette butts they so
mindlessly and thoughtlessly toss from their car windows."
"If you wrote down her license plate number, you could report it on the
NC DOT Litter Bug site. I do it all the time. May not do much to the
offender, but it makes me feel better knowing I'm reporting those lazy
"She was making an ash of herself. Next time get her license plate number."
Of course, not everyone appreciated the post:
"People don't want a butt collection in their car so they throw them out. Stop being such a whiney bitch."
