Melbourne is a fine city (not only singapore)

If you smoke on bourke street mall and get caught , it will cost you 100 AUD, if
you drop a cigarette fag and get caught, you will pay up to 660 AUD.

Like it should be.. hopefully some people at SBB get the memo and start handing out fines to the plentyful of smokers who can't follow rules.

Nope, won't happen. They don't have the power, they're not police.

So people are powerless to stop people smoking on their premises unless the smokers are specifically breaking a cantonal or federal law?

They're (apparently, not me saying it) powerless to issue fines, which was the question being asked

Which just shows how ineffective any anti-smoking laws are in Switzerland.

Not sure why anyone bothered. I wonder how much it all cost the SBB (for one example)?

Yes. Good. The streets in Zürich are becoming ( or always were ) a shit hole full of stinking cigarette butts. Nobody gives a f.
About time they kicked these city trashers in the butt.

Actually I could barely make the time, busy as I am. But your reaction's totally worth it, you're so easily triggered.
