Cigarettes out car windows?

By Terra 9 July 2013 22

Just wondering how much trouble I’d likely get in for giving someone back their discarded cigarette?

I was sitting at the lights at GDE and Belconnon Way this morning, and the driver of the van in front of me casually flicked his still lit cigarette out the window and onto the road.  Well, that was the first thought, but then I realised maybe the poor man dropped it and couldnt find it.

I was about to get out and pick it up for him, knock on his window and when he opened it, politely give him it back.  Or maybe drop it in his lap where he could find it later.

Pity the lights changed too quickly.

So really.  Is it an offence to give someone back their rubbish, especially if it’s still smouldering?

What’s Your opinion?

To the OP: I would suggest carrying a small fire extinguisher with you to make your point. Everyone will get the idea, and is less likely to end up with you being hospitalised. If you do want to pick a fight, just point the extinguisher through the offenders window and empty its contents in their car 🙂

Oh, did I leave that bit out? Sorry, I go to work in motorcycle gear. Nose punches and the like would hurt him far more than me. And reaction times to get to the said cigarette and return it are much less. So if you see a big white van raging at a little blue motorbike along GDE one morning soon, you know why huh? 🙂

Euro will pretty much mean pushbikes are second nature. Well in most of it anyway.

A lap of the lake, either all together or in parts, will get her interest up about the main attractions.

Just follow on from there.

War Memorial (yes even for teenage girls) and National Museum are musts.

She could also go online and get her threads confused in Riotact
