Litterbug caught on camera
A WOMAN who was filmed by another motorist flicking her cigarette butt out the window has been fined.
Jeannette Edith Greenhalgh was convicted in her absence at Rockingham Magistrates Court on March 27.
The Department of Environment Regulation prosecutor said a witness had spotted a white car driving in Baldivis.
The witness saw the driver discard a cigarette butt out the window and recorded the information on a mobile phone. The witness then made an online report. The prosecutor said a fine was issued followed by a final demand after Greenhalgh failed to respond. The maximum penalty is a $5000 fine. Greenhalgh requested $742 in costs and told the magistrate she had a written break down of those costs.
Magistrate Vivian Edwards fined her $500.
