Pubs managers from Chisinau started to search for solutions for smoking clients.
After the implementation of new anti-smoking law, restaurants’ directors have prepared special places outside the buildings, and inside have been placed banners with the message “Smoking is prohibited”.
Some managers have rearranged the existing terraces, others have built them from scratch.
Administration of a pub from Riscani district claims that he did everything in his powers in order to not disturb non-smokers. Still, the smoke annoys passers-by.
Some managers have placed outside more tables for those who want to smoke and feel comfortable.
Non-smokers are most grateful, because they won’t need to inhale the smoke anymore.
Non-smoking law has come into operation on May 31st. Smoking now is prohibited in bars, restaurants, nightclubs, even workplace.
The prohibition is applied also to public transport, including taxi cabs. Smoking is also not allowed at public stations, on playgrounds, stadiums and squares during events and festivities. In case of non-compliance, the fines vary from 1,000 to 10,000 lei.
