£50 fine for dropping cigarette butts

"Fines of £50 have been ordered on smokers who discard cigarette butts on the streets of Fife." from a 2006 BBC News article.  It goes on to say:

"For many smokers it has been the habit of a lifetime to discard their cigarette butts on the road or pavement without any thought of the consequences to the amenity of the local environment.  With the new bins and handy pocket ashtrays, people really shouldn't have an excuse for dropping cigarette ends. "
  
Maybe we are needing some environmental wardens to patrol the roads outside Stratheden Hospital?
