Drivers throwing lit cigarettes out of cars - what to do?

Just wanting a reality check here: what does one do when the driver in front of you rolls down the window and flings a lit cigarette out, in stop-and-go traffic? It's happened twice in the last week; once it nearly hit the hood of my car, and the other time, it started rolling down toward the side of the road... Hmmm, lit cigarette, dry grass, fire season...
What is with these drivers and is it ok to honk at a person or flash your lights when they do something this unsafe for everyone? I'm guessing that if they're inconsiderate or thoughtless enough to do this, they're probably the kind of driver who might take retaliation? But it's just not safe, especially during the summer.
Constructive conversation on the topic welcomed, and thanks for reading.
