As I was out walking today, I picked up SIX discarded cigarette butts in less than a half mile. Most had come to rest amid dry grasses and needles on the side of the road.

It's hard to imagine people that actually live here would be so careless, especially with the winds we have been having lately!

As I continued walking, a neighbor came racing up the road, and the occupants tossed a lit cigarette on the road that bounced right into the dry grass on another neighbor's property.:/

You knew it was a neighbor? Did you report it?

After 10 years of never seeing a cigarette butt, and there are lots of homes in my area, this year I have seen several along the road and in the park by the lake. What is wrong with people? Ignorant? No common sense? Just don't care? Whatever, people please don't toss your butts outside. It's trashing the beauty of the area and also might start a fire. Sorry to preach, but dang! :(

Agree 100%

Unfortunately, you can plead and legislate all you want, but people aren't going to listen. They don't care. They're going to keep tossing their butts outside, they're going to keep driving drunk, they're going to keep running stop signs, etc., etc. I don't like it either.

Worth repeating

I might venture to say the grass fire this past week on 285 by Granzella might have been started by a butt thrown out the window. I can't confirm though.

It's like the lovely people in Friendship Ranch that are so nice by throwing out those tiny little plastic liquor bottles all over the road. I can't believe how little respect some people have! The world is one big trash can to them. Then there are the lovely people who stop at a stop sign and empty out their ash tray!
At least I can pick up the little bottles and recycle them and they don't start fires.


I have been seeing those little shooter bottles all over as well.

You should buy a brand of soft drink you don't like so you won't accidentally try to take a drink :yikes:
You may, but don't have to tell your carpool buddies that it's a buttcan. They'll probably notice before the first sip, certainly by the second sip. :rof laughing:


Suggested this. Response?
"Cigarettes are made to have the lit end fall off and extinguish immediately when they are dropped. They won't start a fire." Maybe they should drop them in their jeep then!?

It's somewhat true For some time a chemical has been added to limit burning. Sometimes it works.
