CHANGE: Do you support the smoke ban?

Three-quarters of professional drivers support a ban on smoking in cars carrying children, a survey has revealed.

The poll, by TrackCompare, discovered 75% supported the ban, which earlier this month drew overwhelming House of Commons support and will likely be enforced next year.

Under proposals, those breaching the legislation would incur a small fine.

Kjell Anderton, Director at TrackCompare, said: “While difficult to enforce, a ban sets the right example: the protection of children must be paramount.

“Furthermore, smoking while driving is distracting and should be discouraged.

“Broadly speaking the results are what we expected.”

  1. It’s good to read that three quarters of the people questioned said they prefer a ban on smoking in cars. When you consider the harm smoking does and the fact that only 5% of the population smoke I don’t understand why smoking bans like this takes so long to implement.
