No effective recourse from neighbours' second-hand cigarette smoke

No effective recourse from neighbours' second-hand cigarette smoke

Second-hand cigarette smoke drifting into residences is a problem that only long-term sufferers can truly understand. I wish resolving it were as easy and effective as speaking to our neighbours ("No-smoking rules have to go along with personal and communal efforts to help smokers quit"; Sept 17)

None of my neighbours and friends affected by smoke drift at home have approached their neighbours for fear of a belligerent response and souring relations.

Re: No effective recourse from neighbours' second-hand cigarette smoke

NEA will use cameras to detect illegal smoking - here's how it could work

SINGAPORE: The thermal cameras that could be deployed to detect smoking in prohibited areas would likely be able to capture high definition images of your face from as far as 100m away, an industry expert said.

These pan-tilt-zoom cameras can also track offenders on the move and operate both day and night, said Mr Kenneth Tan, sales director at Transmex Systems International (TSI), a security solutions provider that deals in surveillance systems for law enforcement.

Re: No effective recourse from neighbours' second-hand cigarette smoke

Although the smoking detectors are cutting edge technology, i think its a waste of time and money only. Can such cameras track the smokers to their home address? If they install it on corridors in homes and flats and the cam can track the smoker entering their home unit, then i think it is effctive to clamp down offenders. If they install on public places, the NEA officers will sure not able to reach the palce on time to apprehend the offenders. By the time they reach the place the smokers are long gone. Sure NEA will trace such offenders like a crime scene it will be a waste of time and manpower resources just to get one smoker. I strongly such these cams be placed on HDB corridors and i know many people smoke at HDB flat corridors. What is the smokers now go to anotehr flat or a different storey to smoke? Can such cams then trace them? Please use a little bit more of the brains before spending money on cutting edge techs that are useless for show only.
