Woman fined after throwing cigarette out car window

Elk Valley RCMP issued a $575 ticket to a woman after she chucked her cigarette butt out a vehicle window during a conversation with police.

On Sunday, July 5th, Elk Valley RCMP were patrolling the Coal Creek Forest Service Road around 10:30 am. RCMP said they came upon a white Nissan Altima that was facing downhill on a trail and appeared to be high-centred on a water-bar.

RCMP was in the area after receiving a report of a stolen vehicle in the same vicinity, although the vehicle was of a different make and model.

The police officer noted a woman in the back seat of the Nissan Altima and began to ask her a series of questions about the situation.
