California Vehicle Code 23112
Let’s face it mistakes happen, sometimes drivers are absent minded and throw things out the window not thinking about the consequences. The Don’t Be a Litterbug campaign was memorable and unforgettable with catch phrases to assist a driver in remembering not to litter but not everyone remembers the campaign or the message.
