No Smoking

No Smoking Sign on Waterfront Park Pier As Jacob once said, the wooden piers and walkways are probably a good place not to be smoking. The City thinks so, too. New signs have cropped up recently asking people not to do just that. So I was sauntering along with my camera, and thought this would be a good day to take a photo.

By the time I'd walked the short distance from the entrance of Waterfront Park (the pier at the end of 14th Street) to the end of the pier, I noticed a guy on a cell phone having an animated chat with someone and enjoying the last puffs on his cig. He tossed the butt into the water just as I noticed what was happening and was getting my camera into position. So I missed the shot.

One of the bad things about cigarette smokers is they don't seem to care about what they do with the butts. When I was in the Navy, to throw a butt on the ground was a serious offense...we were taught to field strip them and spread the tobacco...'course that we even before filter cigarettes!

Thank you for kind words about Owen Patrick...he seems to be a well-turned out kid!

It's been a little over ten years ago that I quit smoking, but even when I did I couldn't stand it when other smokers would just throw their butts wherever they felt like. I hope the signs work.

Many of the people who smoke there already are socially handicapped and will smoke anyway. Don't know what to do-threaten to throw em in the river or cut off their hand?

Interesting post and even more interesting comments. I see no solution in sight, smoker are addict and even the more considerate and educated are almost careless if in need of a puff...
