Butt Out: 117 Queenslanders Fined For Smoking Around Bus Stops

Almost $30,000 in fines have been dished out to smokers who light up near Queensland bus stops, taxi ranks and ferry terminals.

On September 1, 2016, it became illegal to smoke within five metres of public transport waiting points.

Since then, 117 fines were issued to Queenslanders for the offence, which currently attracts a fine of $252.30.

That was about one fine on average every four days.
