Vast majority of Czechs want smoke free restaurants

The vast majority of Czechs want smoke free restaurants. According to the latest survey results 78 percent of respondents –including many smokers – said they would welcome a smoking ban in restaurants across the board. Forty percent of Czech smokers would support such a ban. It is now up to individual restaurant and pub owners to decide whether or not to ban smoking. A large number of them fear that by doing so their would lose many regulars. Efforts to approve a smoking ban in eateries across the country have repeatedly failed in the past.
