UAE drives towards total ban on smoking in cars

The UAE could totally ban smoking inside cars in line with a proposal by the Dubai traffic police chief, who said he would soon push for such a ban.
Major General Mohammed Saif Al Zafeen, who heads the Federal Traffic Council, said he would soon make a recommendation to the council for a total ban on smoking inside cars and the introduction of penalties against violators.

“Smoking must be totaled banked inside cars because smoking is not less dangerous than using mobile phones while driving as both need to be used by the two hands,” he said, quoting by the Arabic language daily Al Bayan.
