The National Environment Agency (NEA) needs to put up posters at all bus stops and shelters to increase awareness of its no-smoking zone at these places, including any area within a radius of 5m from the outer edge of the shelter.
There have been numerous occasions when smokers appeared to be ignorant of this NEA requirement.
Non-smoking commuters have to endure the harmful smoke as they are reluctant to approach the culprits, especially as some smokers become very agitated and belligerent when asked to observe the no-smoking rule.
NEA and the Ministry of Environment and Water Resources must study and implement the above idea expeditiously.
