    I fully concur with your comments. Did you know that the MPs are allowed to smoke in the House of Commons Bar. As this building belongs to the people of the country in law makes it a public place. ONE law for tem.One law for rest!!!!

    I know in Scotland Truck Drivers can be fined for smoking in the cab of their vehicles, and many are not happy bunnies.

    I too have three vehicles that could be described as private as I'm the only one who drives them BUT they are business vehicles and as such MAY have passengers or other drivers and as such these vehicles can not be smoked in, and must display signs accordingly any private vehicle in the true sense of the word is at the moment exempt
    I agree its harsh, In fact smoking is compulsory in my Private vehicles:Rofl1::Rofl1:

    A work vehichle is a public place and the law does not allow smoking in public places.

    All of the vehicles owned by the company that I work for whether they be cars vans or HGV'S are places of work and as such are public places.

    If this gent uses his van for work it may be that he is a Limited Company or Self Employed.

    The vehicle is a public place, its a bit harsh to say the least but cant that be said for a lot of things nowdays.

    Smoking in a vehicle should be banned full stop. :Smile:
    1. It seems smokers never use car ashtrays (For good reason, it stinks)
    2. Most smokers just flick buts out of windows as they do not consider buts as litter. I have also caught a more than few carelessly discarded lit ones in the face when on my motorbike:RollEyes:.
    3. When in your vehicle it can be dangerous when that red hot bit drops on to your lap. More dangerous than using the phone.
    4. Using knees or elbows to steer when rolling one up is a excellent skill but a dangerous one.
    5. Parents who smoke in a car with children should be horse-whipped.
    The qualifier..

    I smoked 40+ cigarettes a day for over 25 years many of them in a vehicle! (but never with kids) Hardly ever used an ashtray, used the open window.

    My advice is to quit - its easy. It only took about 500 attempts but the last one, 13 years ago worked (so far):Smile:

    Hi, This is yet another example of "too much law and too little justice".
    This is on a very rapid increase. It is all to take away our freedom of choice and exert, ultimatly, total control over us. It is the most important issue since WW2.

    My boss owns his own car, paid for it from his own pocket but because he uses it
    for work and is paid to do-so he cannot legaly smoke in-it. :Doh:
    It's political correctness gone mad.

    Hi Jim,
    do you realize you have smoked at least 365000 cigarets or at least 18,250 packets !! this all equates to smoking the equivelent of one very good motorhome , with an approx value of £45000.00!! just think of the tax take , you could be in for a knight hood !:Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1:

    best regards lady jann ,:Smile:

    Crikey... Just imagine £45000 going up in smoke.

    That thought, in itself, makes a good point for not smoking,

    But it is the individual's choice.Until they make the smokers social outcasts, like they seem to be doing.:Doh: It'll be drinkers next.:Eeek: Oh and they've started a tv campaign (Knock-off Nigel) on music downloaders.

    Using the media to make certain groups social outcasts.Brainwashing :Eeek:

    BTW I have never smoked , but I do believe that people should have a choice.
