Smoking on the bus
I have observed that as a habit a number of passengers keep smoking while traveling on buses.
As a matter of fact, puffing clouds of smoke on the bus has a serious impact on non-smokers” health. Therefore, I would suggest that bus drivers be instructed to prohibit strictly any passenger smoking while in the bus as it evidently causes a lot of inconvenience to non-smokers, as other passenger might be allergic to tobacco.
I believe that the traffic authorities should give strong directives to all taxi owners to observe the order. Those who violate the order should be penalized accordingly.
