Smoke-Free Playgrounds And Exercise Areas

Smoke-Free Playgrounds And Exercise Areas

In The Sunday Times published 14 December 2008, an advertisement placed by the National Environment Agency announced that more places in Singapore will be smoke-free from 1 January 2009.

Smoking prohibition in certain places in Singapore has been implemented since 1970 and progressively extended over the years to cover many public places.

Of cheer to Seen This Scene That readers who like to enjoy clean air in our public parks and gardens is the designation of playgrounds and exercise areas as smoke-free places.

All playgrounds, fitness corners and games or sports courts in public and private housing estates, parks, hotels, etc will go smoke-free from 1 January 2009.

Games or sports courts include the following:
a. Basketball courts
b. Badminton courts
c. Sepak Takraw courts
d. Volleyball courts
e. Tennis courts
f. Street Soccer courts

To ensure that members of the public enjoy a healthier environment while using these facilities, all chairs, benches, spectator stands and side-walks immediately adjacent to such facilities will go smoke-free as well.

Some pictures from National Enrionment Agency (NEA) Guide on managing smoke-free places (PDA format):

This is a very good measure.

It ensures the health of the majority who wish to be living clean and healthy as compared the lesser few who choose to induce the disease to themselves.

Don't want any part that the smokers exhaled.
