In-vehicle smoking of taxi drivers and bus drivers has been banned. In the past, drivers could not smoke in vehicles when passengers occupied the vehicle.
However, with regulations strengthening for non-smokers, all workers in the transportation industry cannot smoke in their vehicle regardless of the presence of passengers in the vehicle or not.
An official at the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport said it had enforced the regulations of the Passenger Transport Service Act since the 29th of last month.
Drivers who violate the regulation for smoking in their vehicle are subjected to a 100 thousand won fine.
