The 25’ Rule in Non-Effect
Last night on Pine St. in Capitol Hill, about 15-20 smokers were puffing outside of Man Ray, Bus Stop, and Cha Cha. None was observing the 25’ rule. Then a police car rolled up and parked by Man Ray… and nothing happened. No order to observe the law was barked, nor was a measuring tape brandished. Unheard, also, were complaints from non-smokers about this situation. The non-drama of it all was remarkable.
