The campaign, which was staged at the Senen Terminal, Central Jakarta, on Tuesday, was conducted by students from IndonesiaUniversity’s public health faculty, who pasted thousands of no-smoking stickers on to the windows of public transportation vehicles.

The students were helped by police and transportation department officers.

The stickers featured no-smoking slogans, a picture of someone suffering from mouth cancer, applicable no-smoking rules and regulations, and a hotline for people to call to report incidents of smoking on public transport.
