Smoking banned while driving children under 12
Upcoming law will ban people from smoking in vehicle when children are present
Actually the age limit for Tobacco products should be more than 21. Moreover in some sheesha houses they dont check the age.

On footpaths also, so many people smoke. Please consider that also. It would be great , if the govt sets up some smoking zones at regular distances, so that people dont smoke whereever they want.

They should ban all these things....

I suggest not only Banning of Smoking but also those people wearing UNMODEST Clothes in public. It should be prohibited in this country as well.

This is good news and will be even better when the law is imposed for making it compulsory to wear seatbelts in the back seats of cars

This is a long overdue law, partly because it will protect children from the effects of passive smoking and partly because these drivers will now have one less thing to distract them. Given how unattentive and casual so many drivers are in UAE, this will go a small way to improving the number of accidents we have here.

Smoking a habit that should be culled when indulged in a moving car. Be it the driver or the occupants for once the last puff is drawn the LIT CIGGARRATE BUTT but naturally flung out of the CAR WINDOW. This is a SERIOUS issue SCARE that can cause a fire. Thats what a spark can cause. Please its my request to BAN SMOKING IN CARS like they do in certain public spots a) Malls b) Parks c) Hospitals d) Petrol Stations e) Schools f) Colleges + Universities g) Beaches WHAT NEXT and sure we can have the list go on and on.
