Prohibition of smoking in public parks would seem ridiculous on first glance, but I guess in this case it's not so much about smoking itself, but about smokers throwing their cigarette stubs all over the place and nice words didn't help against it.
Hmm that is possible. Still, littering is littering and I feel like telling something they can't legally do something that does not disturb the peace in public infringes on rights.
Punishing smokers who go out of there way to keep their smoke away from other people and do look for butt stops to throw out their ciggs are now unable to enjoy the park because some people have no respect. It feels like I am in grade school and the whole class is getting punished for something lil Tommy did.
