Adelaide City Council is looking to completely ban smoking in Rundle Mall in the City.
Now, while I detest smoking - the smoke from cigarettes exacerbates my asthma - surely the Adelaide City Council is going a little too far?
I can understand the current smoking ban in restaurants etc. but the Mall is OPEN AIR, or doesn't the Council realise this? This would seem to me to be the "Nanny State" taken to extremes.
If people choose to smoke out in the open air, let them. Don't be so keen to legislate everything, or the legislators may find themselves being legislated out of their comfy chairs by the State Government, many of whom, I'm sure, are smokers themselves.
