Smokers Would Now Have to be Beware Of Smoking in Rundle Mall

Smokers would now have to look for a new place to settle their urges as a voting done by the Adelaide City Council could mean that there is a ban put on smoking in Rundle Mall. There has been an ever growing support to ban smoking in public places and city council now has put forward a motion to implement it. The review would be send to the State Parliament's Legislative Review Committee which would then approve it and make it a law.

The effects of smoking do not hinder the life of the smokers but also the people who are around them. The mayor of Adelaide, Stephen Yarwood acknowledges this fact which is why he has put forwards this motion. He said, “I think it's about striking a balance and I think it's a fair balance and I think it's a good sign of cultural change where people expect more from the public environment than having smoke blown in their face”. He also thinks that this would in no manner effect the Mall as smokers won’t just stop visiting it. From now on they would just be able to smoke in the mall.

There are however special smoking areas made for smokers in the mall, where they could stop and smoke if they like. It doesn’t seem that big deal as health of people who don’t smoke is more important than small urges of smokers, who could relinquish their urges by just moving a smoking zone. Those people who are found guilty of violating the ban would be imposed with a fine of $62. The council is yet to decide whether a ban should apply in streets and laneways adjacent to Rundle Mall itself.
