Four-meter safety belt incorporated into smoking ban

Smokers lighting up within four meters of a building subject to the Victorian ban on smoking in public places may be fined AUD 147 (EUR 106), the Australian Broadcasting Corporation said.

Initially scheduled to begin in July, the safety belt provision is being brought forward to 13 April to coincide with the start of the school term in the state, ABC said. Smoking will be prohibited within four meters of schools, kindergartens, childcare centres, hospitals, courts and police stations.
