Smoking in cars.

#1
perhaps a lot of you dont smoke,i smoke a pipe,which is extremely difficult to do in a car without setting fire to yourself,however this is now going to cost you 60 squid,as my only pleasure is smoking and planning revenge,whatever next?Stop me using my mobile,whilst having a dram and reading my paper on the move? The worlds going mad.

Should ban smoking outright, at least I could give up easily. I always make it, until I go into a pub and smell that sweet sweet smoke. To quote the late and very great Bill Hicks.

"When your trying to give up every cigarette looks as if it was grown by God, rolled by Jesus and moistened shut using Claudia Schiffers pussy.....gosh that's tempting"

You do know that one of the reasons it is hard to give up is because you have nothing to do with your hands, or something missing from your mouth...................I'll leave you to think of what to do :wink:

Surely it is already an offence to drive without due care and attention, and I am sure that lighting, holding a burning object and puffing on it is more of a distraction than using a mobile. No new law is needed, just a bit of imagination by the police... :wink:

It was in the Scottish Press this morning,as usual we get shafted first,but it will be incorporated in the Highway Code within the next tweve months,Its just like the drunken drivers, they cause less accidents than the rest,so get them off the road (the Rest), and us drunks can have a hooley.

It makes me wonder why if smoking is so bad for smokers and the people who manage to inhale smoke fumes from smokers why hasn't the sale of
tobacco been banned.

Make it a class A substance if its that dangerous .

More restrictive laws---- I have a feeling that with all the people stopping smoking the treasury must be feeling the loss of revenue from less tobacco being sold so they have to compensate with fines .

A for no smoking in pubs - there's about ten pubs up here all put in for planning permission to open up beer gardens with awnings etc--

I hope they don't do that here! In the Peoples Republic of Oregon, my car is the only place I CAN smoke. Even smoking outdoors is banned on city property. During certain times of the year, I can't even smoke outdoors on MY OWN property.

I guess I could quit, but I already gave up sex, drugs and rock and roll, so I gotta have something!

Are they banning smoking in cars (outrageous abuse of civil liberties) or smoking while driving (same, but with at least some logic)? I haven't heard this at all.

Here's what the people think anyway

Personally, I believe a car is your personal property, should be construed as being like your home, and providing you are not forcing anyone else (like your missus and kids) to smoke by proxy then I don't see a problem.

As an ex smoker, I used to always light up behind the wheel. But then I circumnavigated the M25 every day and it helped pass the time in all those jams.

The reason the Gov. in all countries won't completely ban smoking and/or the sale of tabacco products is that they can't afford to loose the revenue. Just think of how they will recoup this loss. Up the excise on alcohol, petrol, a fresh air tax etc, etc

Just remember, everthing you like is either illegal, immoral or fattening

As an ex smoker ( 1975 ) I did enjoy a puff at sea, particularly on those bloody long middle watches. Duty free another bonus making it a cheap habit. I do accept it is now dangerous but believe if it was just pure tobacco, without all the preservatives and other poisons the makers add, all the nasties would go and smoking would be OK. I don't think I could do it again though, silly practice and completely un-natural.
