It isn't the town that allows trash to be thrown out car windows; it is the idiots inside.

Its the new transplants that come here from the suburbs. When I was a teen in the 80s they didnt have all that stuff going on. Its a lack of respect for the town and now that I live in Chicago I can guess who are the ones throwing stuff out the window. Oprah's transplants.
