Highland listeners back ban on smoking in cars

A snap poll of Highland Radio News facebook users shows that the majority are in favour of an outright ban on smoking in cars.

Today it's emerged the Government is considering plans to completely ban the habit in cars.

It would be a step further than the original idea of making it illegal for drivers to light up when a child under 16 is present in their vehicle.

Of those that took part in the the Highland Radio News Poll those in favour of a ban outnumbered those against by 2 to 1.
