Taxi driver removed from school route after reported smoking

According to UK law, a taxi is classified as a place of work, and therefore it is illegal to smoke in one. This has caused recent controversy, after a South Wales taxi driver was accused of smoking in a taxi while taking children to and from school.

The driver, operating in Port Talbot, has been accused by parents of ignoring the no smoking signs required by law to be put up in every taxi. Scott Phillips, a local parent, told the South Wales Evening Post that he noticed a strong smell of smoke every time his child was dropped off at home.

Mr Phillips informed the driver he would be making a formal complaint. However, his daughter told him the next day that the driver had lit a cigarette while her and three other children were in the taxi.

The driver has reportedly been removed from the route while the allegations of smoking are investigated.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801696595-ADNFCR
