Drivers who get caught tossing litter from their car windows in Chicago could soon get hit with a big fine.

The City Council Thursday approved a new measure to increase those fines up to $1,500.

The new ordinance raises the minimum fine of $50-200.

Chicago police will also have the discretion to impound the violator's vehicle.

The new law is set to take effect in about 30 days.
