Illegal Dumping and Litter Control Law

On Tuesday, the Illegal Dumping and Litter Control Law, HB386, passed the House. The law would allow for 8 points to be added to the driver’s license of those found illegally dumping or littering from a motor vehicle. This is the same number of points for those convicted of DUIs and hit-and-runs, and most often, an instantaneous license suspension results! It is a hope that increased inforcement of litter laws such as this will decrease occurences of dumping altogether. Only time will tell until the bill is made law.
