Stop and think before you throw your butt...
Recently I read an article starting that the reason for the one of the tower fires in Sharjah was a discarded cigarette butt.
One day while I was conducting my duty, one gentleman was busy on his mobile while walking past a building when suddenly threw his cigarette butt towards a pump room with a generator in it. Luckily I saw it and stepped on it. If I hadn’t seen it, there could have been a huge fire and all the Marina area could have turned to ash. Although there are signboards everywhere some smokers don’t care. Smoking is a big issue around the world.
Millions of smokers die and the affects of smoking cost millions of non-smokers their lives. The UAE government is planning to put some dangerous signs on the cigarette packets regarding the effect of smoking but I don’t think this is enough. They should also increase the price of the cigarettes every six months to avoid great disaster, which is daily doing by smokers and to protect the innocent lives.
