Re: New traffic laws in Turkey,

The snag is they still smoke in buildings (maybe not government buildings) , but certainly some shops /offices / dolmuses/ taxis/bars indoors
Of the 3 bars local to us, 2 do not allow it under any circumstances indoors, but the 3rd has one of those metal and plastic sheeting "conservatory's" and while he didn't allow smoking in the winter in there as well as indoors, in the summer with the sides open (and not neccessarily all 3 sides) , folks smoke in it while others are eating
.Won't go in anymore but it's always packed

Never seen a Turk wearing a seat belt either but agree that someone needs making an example of , but what can you do when some folks continue to break the law

There is someone down on the front who has a change sign up all season with a REALLY good rate , when trying to get that rate , he diddles people , 3 of the ways are common knowledge here

1- if he's offering an exchange rate of, say 3.91 and you want to change 100 , that is easy, you should get 391 lira BUT he says he hasn't got enough GBP and hands you back, say 30 then gives you your lira , you count it later and then find he's only given you something like 3.6

2- He actually counts the lira out and then insists on squirting some lemon juice on your hands and offering a paper towel.......while all this is going on, a young lad craftily sneaks some of your money back out of the pile

3- He has a shoe shop and if questioned about the rate he's just diddled you out of, he says that is for a pair of slippers as mentioned on the outside board (there is actually two minute letters above the exchange rates for $ and euro which nobody can make out)

This person has been reported loads of times over the past 8 or 9 years that I know of, but each time nothing is done
