Read the OP.

My name is popeye and I used to smoke and drive. I stopped about ten years ago. I don't begrudge people the right to smoke in their cars, but I remember mine used to smell absolutely terrible. And the mess of ash thrown back in from the open window 'flick' on the floor in the back. Yuck. And I although I did it thousands of times I do feel irritated when I see someone chuck a fag out of a car, so I can imagine how annoyed a non-smoker might get. Such careless, senseless littering.
Many thanks!

Smokers always have yellow fingertips too. How do they get that thick brown stain on the thumb and index finger though? Is it from falling asleep with a lit tab in their hand and having it burn down slowly?

One thing is for sure, you can tell by the abuse posted who the guilty clowns are.

You can't even handle a mobile phone whilst driving, engine running as its deemed dangerous yet clowns are allowed to smoke away, throw their rubbish out of the car onto other peoples cars/etc, they can hardly drive, rarely signal and I just knew that those that do this kind of thing would post abuse at me.

In nose to tail traffic a few years ago some smoker threw out his ciggy first and I thought about getting out of the car but my OH said to leave it, then they threw out empty food cartons and cars stopped. I went over and said, "sir (really meant you parasitic bag of donkey st) pick up your rubbish" the pair lol - then I told them a fib, I told them I had a dashcam which I don't, that got the clown out mutter trie and pick up its rubbish and all I could hear from other cars was wild LOL's

You are a clown and a loser if you don't recognise the fact that throwing rubbish out of your car, endangering others, not indicating, etc, etc is against the law and I hope you are pulled up or reported by good honest drivers with cctv and get points and fines but sadly, a lot of these clowns that break the law do not have their cars registered/etc and are the types that hit your car and f off. Ask any police officer that when they stop a car for a possible minor offence, the majority of the time they will find other things that need to be addressed,EG no ins, tax, mot, licence, registered, drugs, defective car and so on.

So keep on slagging me off if you wish but thankfully many everywhere inc here that understand and agree with my concerns.

I'm hoping that this thread will wake up some smokers/drivers to other road users concerns.

Post abuse at me if you wish just shows what you are.

I don't really mind people smoking in the car if it's cigarettes.

What pisses me off more is the number of drivers smoking weed at 08:30 in the morning. Seems to be specific to van drivers and the odd car with blacked out windows... Believe me I can tell as I'm usually on a motorbike overtaking in stationary traffic and I get this every single morning.

As useful, and informative, as your post about how to claim for pothole damage.

I particularly like the way OP dehumanises people who smoke in their car. That's a special sort of madness.

In the good old days, the 1990's, I used to;

Have the mobile wedged between my shoulder and ear, and at the same time would often roll a fag with a coffee on the dashboard and steered with my knee. That was when I was on the tools and drove a transit, it was joyous. And then women started text messaging and ruined it for everyone.

Back in the 80's Halfords used to sell these granules that you put in the ashtray that let out a lovely fresh chemical toilet like fragrance when you dobbed a fag out on them.

Back in the 70's cars, mainly Fords from what I remember, had massive ashtrays which never did anyone any harm.


I've since given up smoking but vaping can also be a lot of fun in the car. Making the car so full of vape cloud is very good training for when it is foggy outside. But farts just don't taste the same without tobacco.

The government does not want to ban smoking and trying to drive
because of the taxes it collects.

How on earth can you drive safely with a lit stick in your hand that throws
smoke into your and others eyes.

The other thing these clowns never fail to amuse me is they nearly always have
their window open even in freezing and rainy weather hence sharing
their stench and disease with those that do not want it.

These type more often than not are in older, battered cars unless its women then
its an old suv or newer Corsa. If you don't believe me, just watch the next ten smokers
and rarely will they have a decent car.

The clowns/smokers will often toss out their ash and cig butt on the road and
if thrown from a van, higher car it can land in your car if your window/s are open and landed on mine years
ago when I had a S class MB saloon - landed between the bonnet and wipers smoked for a good minute.
I tried to catch up with the inbred but traffic lights went in the inbreds favour.

These clowns are also usually guilty of the no-hands syndrome about 99% of the time as ciggy in one hand how on earth can they indicate.
These clowns slow down traffic especially at the roundabout as they don't indicate as 50% of the other clowns with the no-hands syndrome.
I politely hand gestured to a clown the other day at a roundabout why not indicate as it was truing left i could have gone straight on - should have seen the look on the inbreds face as though it wanted to hit me. I'm scared of creatures like that but if attacked I
will use reasonable force to body slam the inbred.

Do you, family, friend a inbred you know smokes and is guilty of driving badly like I have seen many times? Have you ever asked them why they don't keep windows closed and enjoy all of their stenches and why they don't indicate? In my family/relative no one smokes as its a lower class thing the vast majority of the time.

Please do not take offence if you smoke whilst trying to drive, keep your windows closed, don't throw out your rubbish out of your window and put others at risk and use your indicators.

There can be nothing worse than driving down a country lane, ciggie in hand, minding your own business, when suddenly you drive down one of those pesky potholes and the red hot ash gets jerked off the end of your cigarette falling onto your lap and burning and hole in your brand new chinos.

If only there was a template for getting compo from the local council.

Nobody is giving you abuse because they smoke OP. They are giving you abuse because you are a rubbish troll and a fúcktard.

This I do agree with. Any litter, whatever it may be just take it home and bin it.
