One guy threw his onto the floor and stomped on it. They made him pick it up and put it in the ashtray.

Well done CFF!
I'm not sure if it is only BS, BL, or all of CH, but it is an 80CHF fine for tossing your butts on the ground in BS at least. Now there's easy picking's to increase revenue

Gutters don't go into rivers in ZŁrich.( at least one hopes so ) And yes its nice to see all this shit that smokers put out removed from the streets. Until the next thoughtless smoker throws another butt on the street. And just another example of what a shithole the city would become if no one cleaned and if nature did not help eliminate the waste!


https://telebasel.ch/2018/04/20/80-f...tte-wegwerfen/

Sorry its in German.



"Anyone throwing a cigarette butt on the floor in Basel will be asked to pay. From May waste sinners will be billed with 80 francs."

Thank you Basel. They should make these sinners lick the ground!!

Yes. But rent-a-cops canít fine anybody. I doubt that they have the authority to tell the addict to pick up his butt either, but they outweighed him by an order of magnitude.

Re: Smoking on the train platforms.uughh

I was walking home from the store the other day, following at a distance a young couple. They were probably almost a full block ahead of me, but I could still smell her cigarette. I crossed the street in an attempt to avoid walking in her stench, and it worked for a while. But as I slowly caught up to them, they also crossed the street, now just a few meters in front of me. She crushed out her cigarette and dropped it on the sidewalk without a thought. I loudly said "80 Francs" but they didn't bother to notice me. I ended up following them home, learning that they are part of the new residents* in the recently renovated building next to mine.

On Monday evening, a little excerpt from the local paper announcing the 80 CHF fine will be posted on the building's door.....



* I highly disapprove of just about everyone that has moved into the building so far: the smokers, the people with the yappy little dog, the people on the 3rd floor who have a cat on the balcony without a cat net...

Re: Smoking on the train platforms.uughh

Perhaps if the authorities offered to split the fine with witnesses (providing a phone video) it would be more effective.

So is. An overuse. Of Periods.

(you'll notice that I mentioned that they live in the building next to me. Hardly "stalking")

Re: Smoking on the train platforms.uughh

You mean the three butts and the one tissue?

Oh boy yes, total shocker, a true garbage dump this is.

You've definitely been in Switzerland too long if you think THIS is "dirty".

In Narnia every corner of the street is spotless and you can eat your lunch straight from the pavement. Neighbours are suave creatures never to be seen or heard. Cow bells collide in the rhythm of Vivaldi's Seasons....

Church bells would have been more plausible, but I didn't want to open yet another Pandora's box - how the "locals" live their lives according to churchy customs and there are no open shops on Sundays...
