A Japanese businessman (L) takes a cigarette break in the 'SmoCar' in central Tokyo on January 21, 2003. Japan Tobacco, Japan's number one tobacco company, rolled out a remodelled trailer in the city's central Chiyoda ward, which began slapping fines against smoking on the street late last year.

More on the puff cars.

Tokyo Smokers Enjoy Puffers' Paradise on Wheels

Smoking on the street was banned in the busy parts of the ward since last October, and a system of fines--up to $170 for multiple offences--began in November.

The regulations, rare in Japan where just under a third of all adults and nearly half of men smoke, were introduced by the ward office to help keep the area litter-free and cut down on the number of incidents where people are burned by passing smokers.
