    Chennai Corporation to enforce ban on smoking

    Smokers beware. The Chennai Corporation is planning to crack down on people who violate the rule prohibiting smoking in public places.

    At a meeting of sanitary inspectors organised by the State Tobacco Control Cell on Tuesday, corporation officials have been asked to impose a fine of Rs. 200 on persons smoking in public places. Those who fail to pay the fine will be taken to a nearby police station and a case will be filed against them.

    Even though the fine is already being collected sporadically from smokers since the law came into effect in the city in 2008, the rule is not enforced effectively.

    Good move. What about people smoking in car. Some people have the habit of smokking and throwing the ash out side. I am really nervous about this. In high speed there is a possibility of it entering engine compartment and can cause a fire.

    Quite debatable. Is "Inside car" a public place?
