I have just returned from a holiday in Austria. In 2009 the Austrian Government introduced a partial smoking ban in public places. The problem is that no one told the smoke, Brownian Motion applies in Austria ( although I don’t think humour does) and as result after 20 minutes of sitting in a no smoking area you are breathing in other peoples second hand smoke.
As a result 2 things will happen:
- Austrian will not see the reductions in cancer and heart disease that other European countries have seem post a full ban.
- Non smokers will chose their holidays elsewhere.
