UK Council proposing to Ban Vaping in Taxi Cabs
North Wiltshire District Council has announced that it plans to Ban all Vaping/Electronic Cigarette devices from Taxi Cabs.

The full source can be found here - Dated 2nd Sept 2013
http://cms.wiltshire.gov.uk/documents/s6...ensing.pdf

The report summary is as follows

Quote:A previous report taken to the Licensing Committee on 26 May 2010 considered and agreed a proposed set of harmonised conditions, administrative and enforcement arrangements for licensing hackney carriages (taxis), private hire vehicles, drivers and operators throughout Wiltshire.

This report updates these arrangements and proposes a final step towards harmonisation across the County by the introduction of a single zone for Wilshire Council and one tariff which will apply throughout the single zone.

The report also proposes the inclusion of a “zero tolerance” policy for alcohol and smoking, including a prohibition on the use of electronic cigarettes by drivers.

Section 5.1 states

Quote:The “zero tolerance” policy for alcohol and smoking (including the prohibition on the use of electronic cigarettes) promotes a healthier lifestyle.

In light of the recent CASAA study, should this policy be overturned regarding Electronic Cigarettes ? and do you as drivers consider this an infringement on your human rights ? A friend of mine who owns and runs his own Taxi company, does consider this to be the case!

Please give us your thoughts on this matter.

Thanks guys
