Fines of smokers: 750 000 CZK

The law which prohibits smoking at train platforms and at tram and bus stops is in validity from 1st January 2006.

750 000 CZK in fines is a large number, but is seems that this new law has no effect. The number of smokers at stations is same – about 1500 smokers each month pay a fine. This is criticised by municipal police as well, because there is no effect and the police has to do more work.

Still there is a problem that no one including police knows what exactly “the station” is and where people can smoke and where it is prohibited.
