Texas Litterbug tattle system
 
This is so stupid. They spend our money on this?
http://www.upi.com/Odd_News/2009/07/...5011248044979/

So anyone can just send your plates in and you get hassled by the state over being a litterbug. You also get your info put into a computer database listed as a litterbug. Reguardless if you did or didn't do and no recourse to cure from record.

This is idiotic waste of money and unethical imo.

It's not perfect, but it's about time we do something. I'm fed up with seeing people throw their bottles and fast food bags out the window while driving.

So if I report you just because I maybe see you driving and I am in a prius mad at Camaro's it's cool to be listed in a Texas state DB as a litterbug with no legal recourse then?

ya. it sucks that anyone can just report you and it doesn't even matter if you actually did it or not. that is like someone calling in your plates for speeding and and then you get a ticket in the mail just on that person's word! BOGUS!

Littering is a misdemeanor in Texas. So basically your labeled for a criminal act with no trial or due process.

I'm not sure why this is a major issue. They already have your information, so the information that is input into the website is public knowledge. They are not accusing you of anything, just sending out a letter saying you were seen littering, and here's a free litter bag for your car. If you were littering, then maybe you'll think twice next time. If you weren't, who cares. It's not like you are now on a list where everyone can harass you. Also, they don't mention that you will be kept in a database. Although they might keep your information, I'm not sure what that could be used for.

That's not really the same. If they send in your plates for littering, you don't get a ticket. You only get a letter. If they did start ticketing people, then that would be BS.

No one uses paper for a program like that anymore. It will have to be automated.

The constitution provides for due process. This is a violation of that basic principle.

It's a chipping away of privacy and more towards a police state with less freedom and privacy. This is why it's a problem. If they can take an inch they will want a mile.

Seems like a good program to. I cant count how many times Ive seen people throwing crap out of their car, hell Ive even had to put out a road side fire because of someones cigarette butt once. They are just sending you a trash bag to keep in your car to remind you that the roadside isnt your trash bin.
