Smoking Ban

After the legislation banning smoking in company vehicles etc in Scotland, the company i currently work for has sent a memo round to all our branches saying that when the ban becomes nationwide in 2007, no-one will be allowed to smoke in company vehicles.

A couple of questions for you all: How and who will enforce it? How will it affect any of you that smoke?
Personally, i dont smoke, so it doesnt really bother me one way or the other.

Re: Smoking Ban

I am a smoker, But i would never consider smoking in my tuition vehicle, whether on a lesson or not!

So unfair to smoke in tuition cars i think.

Re: Smoking Ban

Hi Morgan
There are legal exceptions in Scotland if a driving school car is also used for the instructor's Social/Domestic and Pleasure motoring.
However this appears to be a company, initiating a ruling of it's own, which it is entitled to do providing it does not contravene any existing law, witness the number of companies in England which already have no smoking rules in work spaces, indoors and even in some cases, out of doors on the site.

Re: Smoking Ban

i am a non smoker, always have been.

It amazes me how many people smoke in cars in such a restricted space.  Ex smokers have told me that they didn`t realise how much the  car smelt as when they smoked they didn`t notice.

...and for an ADI to smoke in a driving school car, even without a pupil...!

I gained a new pupil last week from an ADI who used to smoke DURING A LESSON but pupil was too shy to mention it to the ADI.

Re: Smoking Ban

There is an ADI who teaches in the area where I live. Not only does he smoke whilst giving lessons, but wears his seat belt when he feels like it. What a good advert.

Re: Smoking Ban

There are at least two in our area who smoke pipes whilst on lessons.
I don't know how they manage to keep any customers.
