Smoking ban takes FULL enforcement in Muntinlupa
From The Manila Times:
Smoking in public evolves as taboo in Muntinlupa as the local government goes full swing in the implementation of its Comprehensive Smoke Free Ordinance in October.
Mayor Jaime Fresnedi encouraged locals to quit smoking as it poses risk to smoker’s and others’ health and urged the public to report to authorities incidences of persons smoking in public places.
Starting on Tuesday next week, members of the Smoke-Free Task Force and authorized enforcers will be reprimanding anyone within the jurisdiction of the city smoking in public places but with no penalties yet.
After the leeway period, violators will be issued citation tickets with fines of up to P2,500 or eight hours community service for smoking and up to P5,000 or 14 hours community service for violation of sales restriction and advertising ban.
Under the ordinance, smoking tobacco products and e-cigarette (vapes) or e-shisha is prohibited in places accessible to the public regardless of ownership, workplaces, government facilities, outdoor areas where people gather, except for designated smoking areas.
how do we report to authorities?
will let you know when we find out. thanks
Before imposing, make it clear to the general public regarding where are the designated smoking areas. Smoking is a choice, you cannot force a person to quit that easy. Susunod naman sa inyo yung naninigarilyo bigyan linaw nyo lang designated areas kung saan pwede. These people also have rights and freedom to do it. Wag ninyo gatasan local government. Puro na lang kayo pera pera pera

its up to your building admin if they will have DSA, otherwise, you keep your lung cancer to yourself…
and its not alabang bulletin ‘s job to “make it clear” the DSA. smoking is a choice for death as a consequence. Should we give rights and freedom to smokers na madamay ang general public sa mga pa lung cancer nila? sagot.
Off-Topic lang…kailan ipapatupad ang NO TRICYCLE ON MAIN ROAD? Last December ko pa nakikita pero sangkatutak ang tricycle sa Alabang in particular, sa Muntinlupa as a whole
Same question here. Tsk tsk.
Hi. I know smoking is bad. But some of us are really just in need to relieve some stress. Just a question, where is the nearest smoking area for Madrigal or Molito except the one between Mcdo and ATC. Just wondering…
