Act against those who light up on pedestrian footpaths

There is an increasing trend of smokers lighting up while walking or cycling at outdoor footpaths and walkways, especially now with the cooler weather.

Non-smoking pedestrians often have no choice but to endure the smoke as it is not possible to avoid using the footpaths.

This will increase health risks from breathing in second-hand smoke.

I urge the authorities to look into the matter. Perhaps it is time to make Singapore a smoke-free environment.
