Here's a dumb quote:

Fischer, a former smoker, said that while smoking while driving might well be a distraction, "you could add it to the list of things distracting people."
Why don't they try to elimate these distractions, especially if they are preventable? Or is that too simple?

But it's okay to drive with a cell phone on your ear, weaving on the road, going 20 miles an hour under the speed limit.........Dont' get me started.

or not:

In June 2005 the Connecticut legislature passed a bill banning the use of hand-held cell phones while driving. The governor is expected to sign the legislation, which imposes fines of up to $100 for violations. In January 2004 New Jersey passed a similar to bill and in April of that year the District of Columbia (DC) followed suit. In New Jersey fines range between $100 and $250; in DC fines are $100. New York was the first state to enact such legislation in 2001. Drivers there face fines of $100 for the first violation, $200 for the second and $500 thereafter.

I personally don't have an opion right now about smoking while driving, but there should be a federal ban on cell phone usage without a handsfree kit.

I swear on a number of occassions, if i had a shotgun on-board I would have taken out the twat in front of me's taillights in exactly the situation you describe above.

the fact that a good proportion of people in the wider area around me are so mentally challenged they can barely talk, (forget reading/writing) combining talking/navigating/driving/drinking a coke/eating a burger is a recipe for disaster
