Okay im at college, and i just nipped outside for a fag. I finish it, drop it on the floor and stamp it out with my foot. Next second some community warden comes up to me and threatens me with a 75 quid fine if i dont pick it up. They then hand me some little pouch to put all my fag ends in. Now usually im not one to bitch about laws, when the smoking ban came in place i just took it in my stride and got on with it but it all seems to be getting a bit out of hand now. Thoughts?

Don't litter.

It's not a stupid law. You simply shouldn't be able throw your crap around after you're done with it.

I'm not going to go hardass on someone for it, but it is slightly annoying.

Smokers throwing their fag ends away pisses me off no end.

Littering in general, but especially that.

All large buildings at Glasgow uni have smoking ashtrays outside for just that purpose but you still see people doing the old drop and stamp.

It's worse when they don't go for the stamp though cus it's stll smouldering away kicking up a stink.

Same here, I'm so sick of smokers just throwing their cigs on the ground when every single building on my campus has ashtrays right next to the doors. How lazy can you get? Stupid smokers.

I always break the cherry out of mine and throw it in a trash can if no ashtrays are around. Save the planet ftw.

No offence, but dude. You dropped it on the floor, STREET CLEANERS COST MONEY, TAX PAYERS MONEY! less rubbish on the floor, means less taxes to be paid. which ultimately means my quality of life is better.

Now take your fine like a man.

What if he was thinking about the street cleaners' families and how it would be miss-a-meal for them if the poor guys didn't have rubbish to collect?

anti-smoking laws are getting a little nuts. in NY state, they just passed a law that says you can't smoke with your kids in the car. I'm not saying i disagree, i couldn't agree more, but the fact that they had to pass a law that makes it specifically illegal is ridiculous. you should be able to smoke when and where you want, and if someone ASKED me to put mine out, i probably would, but if you TELL me that i can't smoke a but, ill give you the finger, light up a new one and rip up the ticket.
#19
i do have a problem with the smoking ban, but i have no problem with putting my fag ends in the bin. that's been enforced since way before the smoking ban came in.

They make that law because there are many dumbasses who do actually smoke with kids in the car. IMO there SHOULD be a law banning that. No kids? smoke away. I doubt those kids want that stinky sh*t going through their lungs.

One might argue that if you're smoking while driving then you're not paying 100% attention to the road.

Ever been to the UK dude?

It would take an army of street cleaners a life time to clear up all our rubbish.

It's seriously disgusting in some places. The average bush in the UK has more disgarded plastic bags, food rappers and drinks cans in it than leaves.

Just saying, there's an arguement against smoking while driving at all.

Anyone who smokes while their kids are around is a bit of a bastard.

Fine if you want to disregard the health hazards to yourself, but it's really a bit disgusting to inflict it on kiddies

The reason they have those laws is because second hand smoke is so terrible for you. Do you really think it's ok for somebody so smoke with a newborn baby in the car? That's a pretty crappy way to start off their health, just smother them with smoke and chemicals.

you can say the same about listening to the radio, having a headache or period pain or a stomach ache, having your whingy little brats arguing or making kid noise in the back of your car, backseat drivers, listening to the radio, having a conversation with your passenger...i could go on

smoking a ciggy out the window just isn't as bad. and to be fair, most people who smoke in their cars generally do it on nice quiet roads or on motorways where they don't have to turn off, or in traffic jams etc, not whilst negotiating a busy and dangerous piece of road.

i can understand where they're coming from, i do my best not to smoke around kids, especially if they were my own, but the point is its a stupid law that never should have had to been passed. instead of trying to figure out how to get money to the ghettos or you know, something that matters, they waste time passing laws about smoking in front of your kids. you wanna talk about wasting tax payers money, lets start there

Well it shouldn't have HAD to be passed, but because people are stupid and care little about the health of their children, it did have to be passed.

I'll stay out of debates about smoking and driving.

I can't drive so I'm not really in a position to say how things affect concentration one way or the other.

IMO just giving money to the poor sections of the city is just going to tell them it's ok to be lazy and not get a job so they're just going to keep living off the welfare system.

Lets not get into wasting tax payers money, socialist Britain and Libertarian America will never agree on taxation and what it should be spent on.
