We carry life watching this action: “we are going in a car and the driver decides to light a cigarette”. Until then everything could be normal, but the problem arises when this driver has to divert attention from the road, release one or two hands on the steering wheel to find the Pack, remove cigar, put it in your mouth, and turn on the burner to ignite the cigar. In meters which has toured doing these actions not been realized nothing of what passed through her eyes with the risk that this entails for him and the occupants of the car.
This situation is very dangerous for compromising the safety of the passengers, but also we must also take into account that the health of the occupants also suffers to breathe smoke this cigar. We all know that tobacco is harmful to health and causes many diseases related to the heart and respiratory system. Therefore the bodies dedicated to the study of these pathologies are asking that smoking in cars when minors in its interior has or pregnant persons is prohibited.
United Kingdom has already banned smoking in the car when inside travel children and is prohibited in Italy the same make when inside a pregnant woman travel. Both actions are aimed to the health of occupants will not suffer by this habit that the conductor is more attentive to driving than smoking a cigarette.
The Catalan Institute of Oncology (ICO) raises that when we go in a car with children or pregnant women are not allowed to quit. To this end proposes that the law expanded the number of spaces smoke-free vehicles when is this situation. In addition, also calls for boxes of tobacco to pass go drawn to be completely white so not attractive (despite the unpleasantness of his photos still are) so that smokers can quit smoking easier.
Either way should be prohibited to smoke in a car by how dangerous is the action and how damaging is this substance for our health. I don’t want to make angry no smoker, but it should be prohibited under penalty and withdrawal of points. To see what happens in the near future.
