In connection with the World's No Tobacco Day on 31 May 2010, the Municipality of Bogor, West Java, will impose a strict No-Smoking Regulation.
According to Kompas, said regulation would cover public places, working places, worship places, children playground, health and sports facilities. Beside, there will not be anymore Smoking Rooms in public places. People who are caught smoking in those places would be punished with three days imprisonment or fined of up to One Million Rupiah.
Now the regulation is being socialized to the public. And according to local health officials, a recent survey shows that 91% of Bogor citizens support this regulation.
As a person who has stopped smoking for around 15 years, the above regulation is really good for me. However, I hope that the authorities in Bogor would also study the implementation of similar regulation in Jakarta which was imposed around one year ago, but with doubtful result, due to weak law enforcement.
