Indiana (Indiana’s NewsCenter) - Due to the dry conditions, the state police will step up to crack down those who continue to flick their cigarettes out their car windows.
The Indiana state police are cracking down on a little enforced law with the hope of stopping grass fires.
State police are reminding all drivers that it is a class A infraction to throw burning materials, like a lit cigarette, cigar or match from a moving vehicle.
Out of the state's 92 counties, 82 counties are under an active burn ban and many of those counties are reporting increases in the number of grass fires.
State police say even if the car is not moving, the person in the car can still be cited for littering if failing to dispose of smoking materials properly.
