This was mentioned on the BBC breakfast show today and they had a guy on who was fighting for smokers rights. Just watching and hearing what this guy had to say made me angry. Since mobiles are banned whilst driving, drinking and eating are banned why is smoking not banned? If you drop your phone in your car you can safely pull over. If you drop a lit cigarette whilst driving you're instantly going to start looking for it! Anyone with common sense should realise that smoking whilst driving is much more distracting that talking to someone on the phone. Only this morning the car infront of me threw a lit half used cigarette out the window at me. Why do people think it's ok to throw things that are on fire out of their car? Anyone else have any thoughts on this topic?
