Five years after France introduced a smoking ban in public places, a new report says more people are flouting the rules, particularly at work. Rules introduced five years ago banned smoking discount Chesterfield cigarettes in all public places, including restaurants, cafés and the workplace. Yet the survey conducted for anti-smoking group Droits des Non-Fumeurs (Non-Smokers Rights) found that 64 percent of those questioned said they had seen people smoking in places where it is banned. A big jump was recorded in incidents of people smoking at work. In 2008, a similar survey found that just eight percent of people had been exposed to cigarette smoke at work.
