Smoking banned in hazardous placesAfter a citywide action against drunk driving, Shenzhen police is targeting another common bad habit that is smoking. The city fire department reinstated the penalties for smoking in hazardous areas.

Residents that smoke in are considered to be hazardous can be detained for five days. The detention is not new and nobody since its implementation have been actually detained for breaking the law. The fire protection law states that people caught smoking in hazardous areas are subjected to verbal warnings, a fine of 500 yuan, and detention of five days.
