Smoking is a dirty filthy habit and those that do don't realise how bad they smell, the bad breath is the worst thing.
We've even turned down trade ins which have been heavily smoked in. Once it's in the fabric of everything from the heading /seats /carpets no amount of wet vaccing with the Putzi get rid of it.
Wet dog is another one but not thread topic..

I don't know where the law stands on this, since I have occasionally seen articles where people have apparently been pulled, and fined by the police for eating / drinking whilst driving.
It does seem odd if this `is' illegal, since if one cannot eat an apple, or have drink whilst driving, whilst at the same time it `is' Ok to have a lit item which is also capable of dropping glowing cigarette ends into one`s crotch, does seem to be a case of double standards, especially since keeping hydrated, or ones sugar count up is likely to be required for safe driving.
A mate once described cigarettes/pipes etc as just being dummies for adults, which did make me laugh!
Like i said in my OP, the gov gets a lot of tax money and this is why this dangerous behaviour is allowed to continue and
add to that the dog sh it smell and dangerous fumes. Left to me I force them to close their car windows and turn on the internal air recirculation.

A few years ago at work, this heavy smoker was given a desk to mine - at the time we had twin pedastal desks so a good 6 foor away from smelly but the stench was really awful at times so i complained to the manager. The manger a cretin disagreed but was a non smoker so i said you sit there, so we left it it that and then a few days llater i was given another desk and the person that was moved next to them also asked to be moved. A few weeks later a bank of four desks was allocated to these smelly people but the poor sods sitting near them did not like it but I was lucky and sat away from them and their wet dog type stench

Yup... yes

I'd already guessed from the rabidity of the semi literate rantings of somebody evidentially not firing on all six and presenting as struggling with severe anger management issues that sooner or later the EU would get a mention.

Anyone who can't drive and smoke at the same time shouldn't be allowed behind the wheel of a car.

In fact it should be part of the driving test.

Am I the only one who reads this and thinks crikey the OP sounds like the type of fella I wish I knew better, it’s the respect for others, humility and complete lack of snobbery.

And I have no problem with them smokng and/or twiddling their fudge while driving. It’s in the privacy of their own vehicle.

Just so long as they also use their ashtray for 5e waste and don’t throw the stil lit but out the window like some sort of .

A few years ago at work A few weeks ago in school, this common, lower class, ganja smoker from the local estate was given a desk next to mine. At the time we had twin desks so a good 6 ft away from the smelly lower class boy, but the stench of his ganja weed was really awful at times so i complained to the manager teacher.

The manger teacher, a cretin, disagreed but was a non smoker so i said you sit there, so we left it it that. Then a few days later i was given another desk and the person class mate that was moved next to them also asked to be moved. A few weeks later a bank of four desks was allocated to these smelly people proles but the poor sods sitting near them did not like it.

I was lucky and sat away from them and their wet dog type ganja 'erb stench, because i demanded that mummy give a BJ to the headteacher in exchange for the best desk in class away from all the common people.

The bizarre EU rant madenit more plausible that he was in a home andnon nurse’s iPad rather than at school?

Cigarette smoke is a horrible smell, especially when stale. Most people will surely attest to that but for it to trip into a weird hatred there are aboviously deeper issues at hand.

My car doesn't have an ashtray or even a lighter actually so I use an old costa coffee cup. I assume the upper classes use a Starbucks cup? My Dads XJ had lots of ashtrays in it but nowhere to rest ones pipe which I always felt was a bit of an oversight.

My car is 14 years old and filthy at this time of year so I fit the OP's stereotype perfectly too! I do wait until I'm at a red light before packing the crack pipe, eating a sausage roll and having a wk though. Safety first.

If people want to smoke in their car, fine. I would never buy a car that's been smoked in - the stench of stale fags is horrible...

That's fair.
Throwing any rubbish out of a car is the mark of a dhead, but a McDonalds wrapper can't set things on fire.

I smoke in my car - it's not for sale, and probably never will be - but throwing butts out the window is a complete no-no.

Having done a road trip with a mate when he had a hay & straw hauling business, I couldn't agree more.

He is the most placid guy I know but when a still lit cig butt came hurtling towards his lorry load of hay he'd completely lose his st.

Rolling a reefer while driving should be part of the test.

When I get my dashcam and confidence using it i will ensure I report every driver/passenger that throws out fag ends and other rubbish and or using a handheld mobile or just holding it. There is a dedicated police website where you can easily send your evidence and i think 95% of the culprits accept an out of court fine and penalty points, really good site that is.

I'm guessing you're not *this* cool in real life?

Got a problem with that?
You bet. Not only is your attitude arrogant probably because you're uncomfortable with the fact that you don't have the will or intelligence to give up a dreadful common habit … but also you may (deservedly) get cancer & be in front of a those waiting to be treated for NON-SELF-INFLICTED life-threatening illness, like my father & wife & many dear friends, some departed.
Extraordinary.
