To the naysayers: What if your loved one or mom/grandma had asthma and severe reactions to toxic clouds of cigarette smoke? Would you care? It's a "free world" right? Go smoke and die on your own property.

Having Asthma, Smokers need to respect the no smoking signs and if they can't then they should be fined...they also should have to pay a littering fine cause every smoker I know throws there toxic buts on the grund.And they are toxic..

OMG Call out the National Guard! Really, you feel that this is newsworthy and needs a bunch of hype? Is your life that meaningless and unfulfilled that you have to made such a big deal out of a petty issue?

I think most non-smokers need to take a close look at themselves before they cast stones. Many of you ignore parking signs, speed limits, school zones, etc. Your behavior could kill lives also. Hypocrites! GET OVER IT.

Smoking is a sign of weakness. If you want to stink, age quickly, gets tons of wrinkles, stained yellow teeth, stained yellow everything in your home..... and be looked down on.....just pick up this nasty habit of smoking.

First, he's illiterate. Second, thank you for posting this, I love idiots in the act. Third, I agree with above poster, he'll die young thankfully, and help keep social security solvent.

The biggest problem is that Trimet doesn't care. I've seen Trimet supervisors in their cars drive on by, never looking at the platform. Once in a while I'll see the police harassing someone for smoking, but 9 times out of 10 they drive by too.

If you don't like what goes on in public, don't go out in public. very simple.

Slime -Met driver kicks a women witha crying baby off the bus and some putz is worried about someone using a LEGAL Product in AMERICA?

I hate the smokers on the max stops. Its always covered in butts, and not just the ones hanging out of the sagging pants... oddly enough they normally go hand in hand.

Just because someone puts up a sign doesn't mean it has to be obeyed. What is Trimet Code? It isn't the law so who cares?

stumpy says ... on Wednesday, Oct 5 at 6:17 AM

Who cares? It's the guys own way of saying "F" you nanny.

Let them keep smoking, we need more ways of getting rid of idiots.

So, my comment gets omitted because? Yet Mr. Man tsh promotion of violence is good to go. B.S.

tsh says ... on Tuesday, Oct 4 at 8:30 AM

Kinda makes them look stupid twice; one for being a smoker, and second for disregarding the sign. Only one real way to get the message across to punks like this. Pop 'em in the nose a few times, then shove their lit cig into an orifice of your choice

Blah says ... on Tuesday, Oct 4 at 8:01 AM

Typical punk trash. You shouldn't expect anyone like that to say sorry and put his cig out. Sometimes it's better to just ignore that behavior, than to get in a fight with an idiot.
