Smoking will be banned in more public areas to better protect the public from second-hand smoke. Smokers will not be able to light up at the common areas of all residential buildings, covered linkways and walkways, overhead pedestrian bridges, outdoor compounds of hospitals, as well as within a five-metre radius of bus shelters. Those caught smoking in the new areas in the first three months will be let off with a warning. However, those who keep flouting the law even though they had been warned can be fined up to S$1,000.
