Thats because you are unwilling to recognise the points made by the people in favour of the law change, or unwilling to recognise their merit. It is dangerous to be concentrating on things other than driving, whilst driving, especially things on fire. This is dangerous for other road users, and passengers, not just the driver. Yes, this is the same as eating and drinking whilst driving but one step at a time. Second hand smoke can harm passengers in the car, and when they have no choice (i.e. young children) it can be very damaging. Like Nexxo says, why force people to wear seatbelts? Because its good for them, and not all of them were happy about it, but its saved lives. This ban wont save as many lives, but it might save some, and isn't that worth it?
