make smoking in cars illegal!

Comment 5th July 2010

Smoking in cars is a  more dangerous distraction to the driver than using a mobile phone. Getting a cigarette out of the packet, finding the lighter, lighting up ,having a drag, disposing of ash, Fire risk, etc all whilst driving with undue care and attention, whilst forcing child passengers, and themselves inbetween drags, to inhale passive smoke in the most confined area.

Why does this matter?

Getting a cigarette out of the packet,finding the lighter, lighting up, having a drag, disposing of the ash, fire risk, etc all whilst driving with undue care and attention. Also forcing child passengers and themselves  to inhale passive smoke in the most confined area for as long as the journey and traffic dictates It is beyond belief that some smokers not only do this but that present laws do not protect children against this.. The children cannot get out and take the bus, they can't leave and move to another public area. ( as could adults before the no smoking in public laws) young children and babies in the car dont know the dangers to their health, I know this will affect the civil liberties of all smokers but unfortunately the safety of children, passengers,other road users, and pedestrians must take greater priority. Smokers have a choice, unfortunately a minority are making very wrong choices which enforces health risks upon others.
