Ensure smoke-free cab rides

Commuters have long tolerated the smell of cigarette smoke in taxis driven by cabbies who are smokers.

Commuters deserve to ride in smoke-free cabs.

Perhaps we should have a system in which cabs which are smoke-free carry a sign on top of the vehicles.

I am sure such smoke-free taxis will be in demand from commuters who cannot tolerate the smell of cigarettes.

Such a system will give commuters a choice on whether to hire cabs without such a sign, or give them a miss.
