Smoking in Public places

Council should take measures to Ban people from smoking in areas where many people gather..

proximity to the malls (Cabot Circus, Cribbs, Broad Mead, Gallery, St.Nichlas Market)  Bus Shelters, Proximity to train stations, Council Offices, Public Parks

Passive smoking is more hazardous that active smoking..  Also measure to be taken to reduce the count of smokers...

Imposing a fine for defaulters will do good as well.. the money can be used for council charitable works.

Why the contribution is important

Smoke less Bristol..   healthier environment

    I am not a smoker, but accept that some people are. Whilst unhealthy and unpleasant, it is not illegal and smokers are not criminals

    Ofcourse, smokers are not Criminals..

    I face this problem every day.. I wait for the Bus in the bus shelter and there comes a person who smokes in the bus shelter..

    I have seen people immediately reacting to the smoke by coughing , i do cough and unknowingly people inhale the smoke..

    i want a smoke free environment.. At least in the places where public gather.

    It will be good to have Smoke free zones in the cities.. let the smokers also be responsible...

    I think this is an excellent idea. I've found burn marks on my clothes because people light up as soon as they get outdoors. I once had my hand burnt. Smoking might be legal but it is is disgusting and antisocial.

    How is this idea significantly changing Bristol or saving us £90M? That's right: not at all.
