Bag of chips
Vladimir Voronin /

Officials in London, England, fined roofing contractor Stewart Gosling £300 ($380) because he'd tossed some empty water bottles, sandwich wrappers and chips bags in the back of his van. He was fined for hauling waste without a license. "They were talking about a plastic bag around two feet high, which was filled with rubbish from my lunch," he said.
