I'm just wondering because i was riding to the store the otherday with my cousin and she needed to throw her cigarette out the window but she wouldnt because ther was a cop behind her so she put it in my drink instead! I dont smoke but im just wondering if this is littering or what. Or do cops even care?

A person could be charged with littering or in some cases the charge can be moved up to conspiracy to commit arson.

Huxley Originally Answered: Throwing a baby shower on a really tight budget how can i pull this off?
I think with today's economy, it is fair that the mother-to-be helps out. However, I would try to get someone to be willing to help with the set up and making the different favors, games, food, etc. Baby showers aren't that cheap, but it can be done for a reasonable amount. If you are unable to work, I don't know if you would be able to do a lot of the do-it-yourself options that allow people to save money. First, plan your guest list. Make it reasonable. Next, find a location where you can have it. Someone's house is the cheapest, but parks with indoor facilities and hotels are other options. Don't have it outside till at least May. At least rent a park outdoor shelter in case it rains. A cookout option can save you money, especially if you stock up when they are on sale. Some food options for indoor parties could include sloppy joes (easy to make), make your own sandwiches, pasta salad, salad, chips, and a veggie tray. It's an easy way to feed a bunch of people. Since you are tight on cash, I would recommend sticking to the traditional pink/blue/or green. You can pick up a bunch of paper products at the dollar store for cheap. I would go consumable homemade item for your favors like cookies, fudge, or soap.

Because police officers have more crimes to fight off, and not looking for smokers throwing out their cigarette butts. BTW, I am not a smoker, and I don't think cops should be wasting their time pulling over people who do that. $500 littering ticket is too much girl! Those laws do exist, ONLY if a driver is throwing away a plastic bottle out the window, a potato chips bag, anything that can harm the other driver will have a ticket for littering, but not for throwing out cigarette butts.

Yes If the cop isn't in a good mood. Some people think that it's littering, because the butt of the cigarette doesn't disintegrate when someone drops it on the ground, it actually stays there for a long time , same with gum. I haven't known anyone being stopped for that...but I like to keep our roads clean so I put my gum on a trash bag when I'm driving. I don't smoke, but I see a lot of people doing the same thing your friend wanted to do.

Yes and no. Throwing a cigarette butt out a window is considered littering and a danger to public safety. However, most police officers won't see or won't care. But as far as officers that are pushy about that kind of stuff, it's best to just avoid the scenario altogether and put it in a trash bin.

Yes. An officer has every right to pull someone over for throwing that (or any thing else for that matter) out a car window. I am a smoker and i never throw my butts out the window. tell your friend to just put them in the ashtray for now on.

it really depends on if the cops is nice or a mean one.I haven't had it happen but it is the law that you aren't suppose to throw out you cigarette because if its a drought it could set the woods on fire .And yes it is littering the cigarette isn't biodegraded ..

Firstly, it's littering. Secondly, throwing a lit cigarette onto a road is dangerous. You're not the only road user and fire is quite hot.

Yes you can get pulled over and fined as it is littering. The likely hood of it happening are slim, but every town/city has that cop(s) who are uptight and pull you over for the tiniest things.

One of the most simple tests of all. Hold the power button down with the key in the accessory position and ( while holding ) open the door all the way and close it rather hard ( not slam it ). Try to wiggle the rubber boot (between the door and the frame ) with the door open and again while at the same time holding the button. There are a number of reasons why this could have happened but this is always an easy start. To add, the buttons face up on the drivers door and are exposed to rain and snow everytime you open that door. It could be the switch itself, it could be the motor, etc.. etc... Worst case scenario you may have to remove the door panel. Which is quite easy if you've got a screwdriver and a set of 12mm sockets and smaller. Hex nuts are behind those little plastic circular discs. Bolts are under the armrest. Removing the switch assembly can be quite tricky here. 95 Camry Owner my issue was wires that were severed where the boot meets the door
