Hawaii bans smelly people from public transport
Apparently it's a crime now to be smelly and ride the bus in Honolulu:
Hawaii - Stinky city bus riders soon could get soaked. The Honolulu City Council is considering a bill that would impose up to a $500 fine and/or up to six months in jail for public transit passengers convicted of being too smelly.
The bill will be heard Thursday in committee. It would make it illegal to have "odors that unreasonably disturb others or interfere with their use of the transit system."
It doesn't matter if it's body odor or offensive fumes that emanates from clothes, personal belongings or animals.
I imagine there would be the Hawaii Smell Patrol would go around sniffing for noxious offenders. That would be a good TV show.
