While in the city last week. I seen a private ambulance with one of the crew smoking. While smoking is a flithy habbit, it does not look well when an EMT is smoking while in an ambulance. Any views

l should point out that it is also illegal as it is considered smoking in the workplace!
Reminds me of a story l hear of a Garda stopping a taximan in the bus lane because he had no fare. The taximan not too happy moved out into the main lane anyway with a only a caution but did something to annoy the Guard wherin he was stopped a few hundred metres later by the Guard for smoking in the workplace! :D
