I believe people have no respect for themself or their surroundings
to they through trash out of their car as if they owned the world.
If you fined them $1000 for the first offense and keep doublng it for
every incident after that, liter would not be a problem. Howard

Litter is a big problem all over the country. We must fine
people big money that's the only way they'l learn. Jim Miller
$100 to $250 if second offense. KH Cahill Dallas, TX
A minimum of $250! With all the money put into Las Vegas for us
tourists to have fun or even to lose money, disrespectful people have to
trash up the place for no reason. They should also be made to clean up
some streets and sidewalks as an added punishment! Donald D.

8 hours of cleaning up trash the first time, 40 hours the next plus
court costs. Greg Palm Bay, FL
Make them pay $1,000 per offense, that will clean up the city fast.

50 dollars for cigarette butt or flamable object. 25 dollars
for paper or other debris. Dick Doyle Las Vegas
boy this subject really bothers me. just yesterday i was at a local
taco bell and decided to eat lunch in the parking lot. as i was i
noticed a car not far from me open its back window, maybe for some air i
thought, no, no to throw out the wrappers was why. being an old hippie
as i am i always throw trash in bins. to me someone who does this and is
seen should face a fine. make it $100. this may teach them to keep our
planet clean. it will be hard to uphold as police have enough to do.
People who litter the streets of Las Vegas should be fined a minimum
of $100.00 for the first offense and each additional offense there
should be $50.00 added. After the third offense, there should be jail
time along with the fine. Its a pity that these offenders do not
appreciate the city that has provided so much entertainment for them. Samuel

It depepends. If the cops are really going out there and get them,a
lot of them. Then fine them $100.00 If they are not really going after
them. And are just looking for a reason to wish the proble away, then
put up signs that say 10,000 dollares for the rats. steve
I have no tolerance for disrespect I advocate a fine of 500 dollas or
10 hours community service to clean up roadsides! By the way, I answer
these all the time, why have I not won something yet? Hey Mr Reed, give
me a break Im going to be there twice in the next 2 months! Thank ya!
Nick Ogle Knoxville, TN
The fine should be $300.00 and court costs, clean up the strip during
peak times especially picking up all the post cards thats trying to sell
women. angela gardier cleveland
I just hate it when someone throws stuff out the window of their car.
They have no respect for anyone, and should be punished accordingly. I
think a fine of $100 is the way to go. Maybe someone will think twice
before they throw stuff out of the window, again. Steven
