Time and again we have seen people tossing cigarette butts out of their cars, sometimes even landing on our cars.

Well, hopefully, we will soon see the end of this.

Recently, according to reports in the Chinese media, a man in Kota Tinggi, Johor was slapped with a RM500 fine for tossing his cigarette butt out of the car.

Apparently, the man was caught on video performing the act by others and the clip sent to the authorities.

The council's enforcement managed to track him down based on the recording and his car registration plate.

They then issued him a summon which carries a RM500 fine.

Following this, the public are urged to record similar incident, with the relevant details, like time and date and forward to their respective local councils.

And guess what, you may even get a small reward for your tip-off and your identity will remain confidential.
