Trevor Emery runs a business repairing washing machines in Kent, together with his son Lee, who is also a non-smoker. A city council warden in Canterbury slapped the penalty on the pair.
This little known law came into force in 2006 and requires all commercial vehicles to display a “No Smoking” sign. Trevor pointed out that “if we were actually caught smoking in the van, the fine would be just £50.” Instead they were fined four times that amount.
Fortunately Severn Signs can supply all the signs you need for your company’s vehicles. As well as “No Smoking” signs we can also supply a whole host of other vehicle stickers and livery, including dashboard stickers warning your drivers against using mobile phones while driving, an especially hot topic at the moment.
