I do not want to share a truck with a trainer who smokes nor do I want to drive a truck that has been previously smoked in.

Which companies do not allow truckers to smoke in their trucks? I will do anything to drive a smoke-free truck.

I can't stand the smell of cigarette smoke.

You can request a non smoking trainer. May have to wait a little longer to get into a training truck.

There are plenty of trucks that have never been smoked in just most companies don't have them yet. If you get a truck that has been smoked in you can request that it be cleaned before you get in it or try requesting a truck that never have had a smoker in it. You can ask.

Now so far as rules or law that you have to be given a truck that no one has smoked in there are not any. You can refuse the truck that is given to you and wait for one that smells nice.

Truthfully it should not be a problem with getting one but might have to wait a little longer to get a truck.

The only laws that I have found that restrict smoking in a truck are while hauling Haz-Mat class 1(explosives), class 3(flammable liquids), or class 4(flammable solids).Nor any placarded cargo tanks used for hauling class 3(flammable liquids) or division 2.1(gases). When hauling any of these you are not allowed, nor should you allow anyone else, smoke within 25 feet of them, which will encompass the cab.

I am sooo with you on that. I right out of school and having considerable difficulty finding a non-smoking trainer without a pet in the cab. I feel like I've already been branded a troublemaker and I haven't even got started yet. I have yet to walk onto a truck yard without someone blowing cigarette smoke in my face. One company even had their office staff and safety manager vaping in the office! I feel like if I can just get through training and get assigned my own rig I'll be a great driver, but seriously it seems that this whole profession is still in the caveman days when it comes to tobacco. In this day of political correctness about everything else that matters, How are they getting away with this? MM

I feel this one whole heartedly; I don't understand vehement anti-smoking while being pro weed.

I smoke, and one thing that I don't understand is smoking inside of vehicles. I couldn't stand to do that; I'd rather be outside relaxing. NOT driving and having it in my vehicle.
