Is that 6 per year??? per day?? or hopefully per hour :beer3:

Wasn't there a ban on smoking in Phnom Penh at some stage ? I vaguely remember a story where police were going around the bars and threatening to fine them if they found any ashtrays. That didn't last long. :wink:

But seriously, they should do something about those trucks that send out clouds of black smoke. That's terrible pollution for families living on the roadsides.

They don't give a damn and if you tell on YouTube they will sue you.

There is a nationwide ban on smoking in restaurants/ workplaces but it's ignored in most places.

I'm not 100% sure but I seem remember Sharky was giving out empty beer cans to smokers instead of ashtrays a few years ago? Supposedly to satisfy the new law...

Why do smokers still think it's ok / cool to stick out everyone around them, don't they like to taste what thier eating.
