This morning, I didn’t see anyone smoking in public areas, EXCEPT…
I thought of taking a picture of that SOB in flagrante delicto (anyway, they don’t carry guns and he’s shorter than I am), but an empty jeep going to MRT station arrived. I needed to go to the office early this day.
Next time, I will try to take a picture of anyone smoking in public places. God, protect me.
Here’s what MMDA had to say on this:
MMDA implements smoking ban today
The smoking ban of the Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA) begins today, July 1.
Under the ban, people caught smoking in prohibited areas such as bus terminals, waiting sheds, schools, hospitals, recreational places and inside public utility vehicles will be charged with a criminal case and penalized.
Fines range from P500 – P1,000 for the first offense, P1,000 – P5,000 for the second, and P10,000 for the third offense. – ABS-CBNNews.com
I never saw any officer “wearing light green shirts and brown vests” along Commonwealth Avenue (Tandang Sora-Luzon Avenue areas), where it is always congested with commuters every morning.
