Ministers to vote on smoking ban in public parks

The Ministerial Committee on Legislation will vote Sunday on a bill that would prohibit smoking in public parks and within 10 meters of the entrance to nursery schools.

“The goal of the bill is to protect children from the dangers of smoking in the areas where they spend most of their time,” said Yesh Atid MK Yoel Razbozov who proposed the bill. “The dangers of passive smoke to children are known to all, but there is still this unfortunate phenomenon.

A small child cannot move elsewhere to escape from smokers or ask that they not smoke near them, so the law must be changed.”
