I've read lots of bitches and replies regarding smoking at Metro Transit bus terminals.

I'd like to add a thought: we can't expect people to follow the "No smoking" directive when the transit drivers themselves are setting the example by stepping off their buses between runs and lighting up, many times directly under the signs.

I walked past the Mumford terminal and lost count of the smokers, drivers and riders both, puffing away. A couple of young pups had also sparked up a fattie steps away from a bus and the sweet aroma of 420 lingered for all to enjoy.

Clearly, the by-law is not working. It's time to either station a dedicated enforecement officer at each terminal or just strike the by-law from the books. I doubt either will happen.
