Smoking

No Whiffs, No Butts

Everyone knows that smoking will be banned in enclosed places in England come the 1st of July forcing smokers out of pubs and onto the streets.

What you might not know is that when you’ve finished your cigarette you face an £80 fine for stubbing it out on the pavement:

Councils are expected to raise millions of pounds from fining people both for smoking and for littering the street with their butts.

It’s unclear to me what half-cut smokers on a night out are supposed to do with their butts without running the risk of accidentally setting fire to litter bins.
