Thread: Walking smokers

  1. #1

    Default Walking smokers

    I feel that smokers should not be allowed to smoke while walking, even in open air areas. It is really terrible as others cannot avoid the smoke, especially when walking in the same direction. Other people are forced to overtake the smoker or are forced to inhale the 2nd hand smoke trailing behind the smoker. Either way, this is an inconvenience to others.

    So smokers, please refrain from smoking while walking and just stick to the designated areas.

    i feel the same.. but smokers will be very angry with us for saying so... they will also defend their rights...

    i encountered smoke outside while walking, but worst, my neighbour smoke everyday.. and i have to rush to close the windows whenever he start performing smoke dance.

    i salute Tokyo and Bhutan for their tight control..

    Yup, I think NEA has to add one more to the list. Anyone caught smoking while walking is to be fined $5000.

    I think we can build smoke houses, let the smokers go in and inhale as much as they want. first hand and 2nd hand. that way, non-smokers can be safe from those bad smoke. Don't need to fully ban it.

    smoking will never be totally banned in sg... and all those restriction imposed by the government is just for show only in my opinion. Nvr seen anyone fine before for smoking outside the non smoking zone?

    cos the government is still earning from these cigarette tax afterall.

    Yup, I think a ban will not be possible. Just add another restriction. No walking while smoking and only smoke in designated areas lo.

    yes. i saw it in the 9pm or 10pm news (chinese).. that was several years ago when they implement it... i was shocked by it! but i think japanese people are really unique... so it works i guess...

    lol.. the smoke from vehicle contains higher CO2 and other chemistry that is more dangerous than smoke from walking smoker..

    ps. I am smoker, but I dislike ppl smoke walking infront of me.. normally I dont smoke while walking because it's not NICE! and not polite

    The worst are those who do not put out the ciggy after smoking and let it continue to pollute the environment on the dustbins..

    This subject is tricky... due to the "human rights" issue..
    Ppl should have the freedom to do what they want with their lives. If non-smokers push it.... saying that they cannot smoke, then its just opening the path to other things..

    No crying babies on public transports (noise)
    No cars on the roads (pollution)
    No airplanes within hearing distance (noise)
    No talking loudly in commmon areas
    No farting ...

    etc etc etc...

    Give and take... i feel. U deserve ur clean air, they deserve their right to... destroy their own lungs.... its a free world.
