WTF: Canadian Truckers Busted For Smoking Behind The Wheel

October 15, 2009

Like red light cameras, prohibitions on smoking in the workplace have become common in much of the Western world. But what happens when your workplace is your car -- or perhaps, your big rig? It's not such a hypothetical question in Ontario, where ten truckers have been hit with a $305 (Canadian) fine for smoking in the cabs of their trucks since the Smoke-Free Ontario Act was passed in May 2006. Now, we're not big fans of smoking, but maybe the Canadian authorities need something else to do. [NationalPost via JV]
