Smokers....Can you truthfully say that you NEVER litter your butts in planters or out your car window?

I hate when I'm driving and the a hole in front of me throws their lit cig butt out the window and it bounces off my car. I also notice the parking lots, and planters, and streets are excessivly littered with cigarette butts. I don't get it. Why is it okay? Why is it acceptable to throw ciggarette butts anywhere you want? Would you throw your pop cans, and other garbage right where you are standing just because you need to put it somewhere? Throw it out the car window? I'm sure there are some polite smokers out there! I do know a few myself. I used to smoke too so I'm not "hating" on everyone who ever smoked.

  • NEVER! I dont smoke in my car. If I do smoke I always make sure there's an ashtray nearby or I just put it out and throw it in a trashcan.

  • I can say, in all honesty that I have not- I used to do community service projects as a kid, and HATED picking them up. I always toss them in the trash, or something headed for the trash.

  • I moved from Cali to MN, and I notice people out here smoke a lot heavier than out here. My neighbors smoke constantly. I can smell the cigs when I open my windows. Their cigarette butts are in my yard all the time because they just smoke and throw them It's really irritating.

  • im guilty of littering with cigarette butts if there is not an ashtray nearby but I almost always put it out before I flick it so it doesnt cause a fire

  • So who's job is it to pick them up anon? It makes it better if you put it out?

  • I admit to doing it once or twice but for the most art I put it out and place it in an empty cup in the cup holder. My car has no actual ash tray so I use cup.

  • Yes, I can say that. I don't have "butts" so there isn't any issue. I smoke ECigs, so there isn't any butts, chemicals in the air around me or extra trash...
