The smoking vehicle program exists to improve the health and well-being of Broward County citizens and the environment by reducing sources of air pollution.
One of the main goals of the program is to educate the general public about the effects of smoking vehicles and how we can all help resolve this issue.
What is a smoking vehicle?
Any car, bus, or truck that generates smoke continuously from the exhaust pipe(s) for more than five seconds. Smoking vehicles are illegal and in violation of the Broward County Code, Chapter 27, (Section 27-175(j)(1).
How often do you find yourself driving behind a smoking vehicle? You roll the windows up, close the vents, and can still smell the fumes!
According to the EPA, a typical (non-smoking) passenger vehicle emits approximately 4.6 metric tons of carbon dioxide each year.
Help us keep our air clean by identifying and reporting smoking vehicles.
