If you’re tempted to throw a cigarette butt out of your car window in the fascist state of Illinois, you had better think twice. It’s a felony. The first offense is a $1500 fine but if you get to the third offense, it’s a $25,000 fine and jail time as a Class D felony.
The Illinois Cigarette Butt Law is new. The excuse for the criminalization of butt throwing is to avoid littering and forest fires. Maybe they should ban matches because they cause fires. They will probably have to pass laws to ban the throwing of soda cans and another for garbage bags, liquor bottles. Who knows how many laws one could pass.
People caught throwing butts in the past have said it’s not really littering which is what led to this asinine law.
The troopers said they will be out on the highways looking for offenders. I guess they have nothing better to do. Their high murder rate can’t compare to the horror of cigarette butt throwing after all.
If you listen to the people being interviewed, you will notice that no one seems terribly bothered by the fact that it’s government completely out of control.
