Shanghai Will Extend its Public Smoking Ban to City's Parks
Updated:2018-03-07 16:35:00

Authorities in Shanghai have launched a pilot project to extend the city's smoking ban to its parks under a new code released on Wednesday.
According to the Shanghai Municipal Administration of Landscaping and City Appearance, the city is still deciding on a park in which to test the policy, which would include the construction of smoking areas, but the ban is expected to be gradually implemented in all Shanghai parks.
The city followed Beijing and Shenzhen in March last year with a total ban on smoking in public places and workspaces.
Figures from the Shanghai Municipal Commission of Health and Family Planning show a sharp decline of smoking in indoor public spaces. Smoking has been banned in more than 88 percent of indoor public places.
In 2017, penalties for illegal smoking were reinforced. Fines for smoking in 1,133 public places - either of violators of the regulation or others who failed to prevent smokers from lighting up (such as restaurants) - totaled nearly 2.6 million yuan ($410,000). The amount approximated the cumulative total from 2010 to 2016.
