Cape Town - Parliamentarians gave their final seal of approval on Thursday to legislation which will make it harder for smokers to indulge their habit in the open air, at home or in their cars.The amendment bill makes it an offence to smoke within a prescribed distance from a window, ventilation inlet, doorway or entrance to a public place - and introduces a fine of R500 for breaches.Full story here: http://www.news24.com/Content/SouthA...ng_laws_passedEmployers who fail to protect non-smokers in the workplace would be liable for a fine of up to R100 000, a ten-fold increase on the previous penalty.
In all honesty I am getting sick of this! Smokers must unite and start an action. This is victimizing the smoking population! I am not joking they are attacking innocent people outright.
What about the bloody drunks that can drink and drive? What about the many road accidents that is linked to drinking and driving. You don’t see them getting in trouble, fact is you see them walk away with not even a slap on the writs!
This is BS and that is the end of it. I am not even a smoker and this is upsetting me!
