no one should be smoking in a hazzardous zone full stop.
we have a bus stop 3 metres from a pump. I have no powers what so ever to demand someone of the premises to do anything. , however they are not deemed a hazardous zone.
it is highly unlikely in the open air especially if the wind has dispersed them, that fumes would be an issue unless directly next to the source.
however government legislation has to be listened to and rules must be adhered to however illogical they may seem.
and no I wouldent allow you to vape whilst filling up, however if we don't see it were not going to stop it.
My post was mainly in jest but it does make the point that however many rules you have they can never be so exhaustive as to do away with the risk. Also, we sometimes seem to add silly rules 'because we can', the banning of using mobile phones at petrol stations is an obvious example. Any fool must realise that starting a car engine, all those amps suddenly flowing, very close to a potential spillage giving off lovely petrol fumes, constitutes a far higher risk than someone holding a mobile phone to their ear several feet above it. We can't ban starting cars though, otherwise we'd have to close petrol stations. So instead, let's ban mobile phones, a totally pointless measure but let's do it anyway, because we just love banning people from doing things.
As for vaping when filling up my bike, I don't. There are no signs up saying 'no vaping' but I'm sure the little Hitlers working at petrol stations would take it upon themselves to instigate a new rule, and blast out a reprimand on their scary public address systems. So instead I do what I do in doctor's waiting rooms, aircraft and the like, and go into stealth mode.
I can only guess it came from mobiles early days. may be rubbish technology or just from fact so little was known. I never use a stupid tannoy, more because I'm never near a till.
I wa a just labouring the point that we jave to follow what the legislation says.
Same problem. Anyway yes there are loads of those boats over there it looks like a most pleasing part of the world ! Norwegians are also noted for unusually attractive vessels. I have Norwegian ancestors on my mothers side so would probably be worth going there one day.

JohnV: There are other drugs but I haven't found the side effects with Ramipril to be bad, it seems to just make my throat a bit more sensitive so things that might have just tickled my throat and make me want to clear it now make me cough.

loddon: The cough is the only one I get from ramipril, although the combinatins of drugs I am on has interesting effects.
