Streator Driver Hit With New Cigarette Butt Ticket

Posted by wlpo on January 7, 2014

With all the craziness on the roads, a driver from Streator got the attention of police for allegedly tossing their cigarette out the window.

Brooke Doty was pulled over Monday night on Route 23 south of Ottawa by a La Salle County deputy.  Doty was ticketed for discarding a cigarette butt on the road.

As of last Wednesday, cigarettes were added to the Illinois Litter Control Act making it a Class B misdemeanor for littering.  Doty faces a fine up to $1,500.

By the way Senator Sue Rezin voted in favor of adding cigarette butts to the litter law while State Representative Frank Mautino voted against it.
