MPD to start issuing $75 tickets for littering

Littering is bad -- I think most people will agree on that. It's also illegal, and WJLA reports that MPD will start issuing $75 tickets for pedestrians and $100 for drivers they catch littering.

Someone could argue "doesn't MPD have better things to do?" but I assume this will be more in the usual course of their day rather than special littering stings or something.

And littering is sometimes a problem in our area, especially around the 7-Eleven and the Civic Plaza where people tend to congregate. That said, there are tons of trash cans around and folks generally seem to use them.

So, don't litter! You might get a ticket.
