The price you'll pay for throwing cigarettes out car windows
A FRASER Coast man's first-hand lesson about the high price of throwing lit cigarettes from a vehicle serves as a warning for anyone who smokes while driving.
Police allege the 22-year-old threw a lit cigarette out of the passenger window of a black Toyota Camry at Booral Rd, Bunya Creek.
Hervey Bay Police said the man was not issued with an on-the-spot fine, but will have his case heard in court next month.
If guilty, the man faces fines of $243 for littering from a moving vehicle, or more than $487 if the litter is considered dangerous.
