Explaination

According to the Digest of Ohio Motor Vehicle Laws, the penalties for littering are up to six months in jail and a fine of up to $1,000. (Note: In fact, this is not correct: in Ohio, littering from a moving vehicle is considered a minor misdemeanor, punishable by a fine of up to $150. Littering otherwise is considered a third-degree misdemeanor, punishable by up to 60 days in jail and a fine of up to $500.) Individual municipalities may also apply their own local litter laws – and penalties. [12 - Litter Laws; Digest of Ohio Motor Vehicle Laws], [OH R. C. § 2929.24], [OH R. C. § 2929.28], [OH R.
