A.   It shall be unlawful for any person to throw or deposit litter in or upon any street, sidewalk, or other public place or any private property, except in public or private containers designed and intended for the collection of litter. Persons placing litter in containers shall do so in such a manner as to prevent its being carried or deposited by the elements upon any streets, sidewalks, or other public or private property.
   B.   No person shall drive or move any truck or other motor vehicle unless such vehicle is so constructed or loaded so as to prevent any load, contents, or litter from falling, being blown or otherwise being deposited upon any street, alley or other public place or any private property.
   C.   In any prosecution for violation of this chapter involving a motor vehicle, proof that a particular vehicle was the origin of the litter, together with proof that the defendant was at the time of the alleged violation the registered owner of the motor vehicle, shall constitute in evidence a rebuttable presumption that the registered owner was the person who committed the violation. If a law enforcement officer has the ability to charge a violation of this chapter to a particular person other than the owner, then the registered owner shall not be charged.
