Has anyone else noticed this recently or has it always been common? It's like security is too busy enforcing all the COVID runaround regulations so they haven't bothered enforcing no-smoking laws.
AFAIK all hospital grounds are supposed to be smoke-free yet I see a lot of nurses and patients sitting casually next to the entrance lighting up.
This also happens at my workplace where a lot of people sit and smoke right in front of a no-smoking sign. When told not to smoke there, they walk 2 metres to their car, sit inside, open the window and smart smoking from their vehicle.
I even saw someone smoking in the middle of a crowded outdoor shopping centre walkway.
This isn't anything new for smokers since they've always been rather inconsiderate but I feel like the rules used to be enforced a lot better. Have people just stopped giving a **** since all the COVID drama?
