Louisiana Cigarette Butt Littering Law Is Now In Effect
Louisiana governor Bobby Jindal has signed the bill that will allow law enforcement officers to fine and give community service to anyone who throws their cigarette butts on the ground, or into the street from their car. So, get ready and purchase those car ashtrays now!
Once again, fines for cigarette butt littering will go as follows:
First offense carries a $300 fine and eight hours of community service in a litter cleanup program.
Second offense will cost $700 and require 16 hours of cleanup work.
Third offense violators could give up their driver’s licenses for a year, pay a $1,500 fine and have to perform 80 hours of cleanup.
