Letter: Smoker's discarded cigarette caused grass fire

Editor:

To the southbound driver on Highway 89 on the morning of Thursday, Oct. 5, the cigarette you tossed out near the propane companies close to Road 4 North landed on the east side of the road and started a grass fire. This 71-year-old lady put the fire out with her hat.

This could have been a bad event. All you smokers, please dispose of your cigarette butts in ashtrays in your vehicles.

To the driver of the little blue-green sports car on Yuma Drive 11/22/12 - your lit cigarette landed on the road still burning. We put the stupid thing out while taking our walk. Only YOU can prevent grass fires- STOP PLEASE.

you can actually order a vehicle with ashtrays. My truck brand new had a cigarette lighter plus a data port and a portable ashtray. Also smokers can go buy portable ashtrays at any auto parts store for their smoking needs. There is no excuse to throw out a lit cigarette.

I DO NOT SUPPORT SMOKERS I'M A LUNG CANCED SURVIVOR. BUT MANY NEW CARS DO NOT HAVE ASH TRAYS ANY MORE. I OWN A 2006 F-250 PICKUP AND DOES NOT HAVE AN ASH TRAY. WHAT USED TO BE A CIGAR LIGHTER IS NOW A DATA PORT. THAT DOES NOT MAKE IT RIGHT TO TOSS A BUTT OUT THE WINDOW.
