Garbage Trucks (and Cars)

I’ve heard that in Seattle, the police can give you a ticket for not having a little garbage bag in your car. The goal is to cut down on littering and the reasoning is that without a receptacle, all your garbage will be going out the window.

The interior of of many of my friends’ cars is covered with garbage. I wonder if the police would overlook the missing bag in such cases.
