A TAXI DRIVER who smoked a cigarette in his cab, was fined €100 by Judge John Coughlan at Wexford District Court.

Caitriona Walsh, solicitor for the HSE which brought the case, asked for costs of €800.

'Ah now, this is a taxi driver smoking in his own cab,' said the Judge.

Ms. Walsh then asked for a contribution towards the costs and the Judge awarded her €150.
