I remember being in court for a traffic ticket I was fighting (and won) when the Girl ahead of me lost her littering fine. What did she do? She tossed a cigarette butt out the window of her car infront of a cop.

My Late Grandmother lived a mile from the traffic light down the road. Just far enough away that all the people who lit up while stopped would finish and toss the butt.. the first 10 feet of her property was nothing but nasty cigarette butts. They were impossible to get out of the grass.

You are completely right. It has to start at home with you and me. Once we get our "homes" in order.. we can get everyone else in line
