So who will care? There are still people smoking at bus stops. Even if there are no smoking signs, people still smoke. :dunno:

They can't ban ciggs totally. If they do, our taxes are going to be like 50%. :)

Being a non-smoker, I'm actually fine with this.

They shld draw yellow boxes near dustbins actually. Want to smoke, stand there smoke, finish, dump it immediately where it shld belong and not flick it all over the place like I see some ppl doing that occasionally.

Alternatively, smoke in the comfort of ur own home. After dinner, sitting on the sofa and lighting up.

The bad part about bus stops is that there is no express wording against smoking in bus stops to my knowledge. The closest one is "any queue of 2 or more persons in a public place". Now the question is whether bus stops qualifies in the above description..

Let me correct myself... no smoking at bus interchanges, especially whilst in Q. :)

As for bus stops, normally I show dissatisfaction by waving my arms to rid the smokey air, most of them understand and will move behind the crowd. :)

Asking the garment ot ban smoking totally is as good as asking all the smoker to quit smoking by themselves.......
