Starting tomorrow....in any Wiesbaden city kid's playground area (all 150 of them)...smoking is forbidden.
Yeah....quietly, the city council moved this way a number of months ago. No one said much. The signs will go up tomorrow morning and it'll be a remarkable entry into a new era.
The trigger to this? The group asking for the no smoking ban wanted to set up a role-model type situation....so kids wouldn't see people smoking while playing. Yeah, it's a fairly bogus mindset, but that's the world we live in.
You are still safe in the city parks, and on the streets of Wiesbaden....at least for the time being. I suspect....within ten years.....most city streets will be a forbidden zone for smoking.
Will there be inspections done and people cited? I would imagine there's probably some guy on the city parks department who has some role as a smoker-inspection dude. Most smokers might take the role of the guy as a joke, but he'll just call up the cops if you don't play the game correctly.
