The authorities of the Czech capital, Prague, decided to prevent intrusions into public parks, parks and other green areas in the city, not due to public health care, but due to the risk of fires.

This was reported by the “Europol” news site, noting that the ban includes, in addition to smoking cigarettes, all kinds of fireworks and other potential sources of fire, while smoking e-cigarettes is still allowed.

It is noteworthy that many places in Prague are forbidden to smoke, as smoking is prohibited near kiosks, bus stations, children’s playgrounds, schools, and any places crowded with people.

The ban on smoking in parks applies in a number of European countries, including France.
