When some butthead throws down, just write him for littering. After awhile the tool will figure it out.

Butt chucking butt chuckers chuck butts all over the place. Such no-class vermin have not a bit of civic or personal pride.
What San Mateo County needs to do is employ,'Butt Cops'. LOL :)

The problem is, it's very hard to catch someone littering, especially when the litter is a small as a cigarette. Maybe we need a 25 cent deposit on each cigarette --- you get it back when you save and return all your butts.

Make it a dollar deposit and problem solved. Good thinking, bro. Streets will clean themselves.
