Smoke Out

July 15th, 2013

In case you nevah hear, smoking will eventually contribute to your death and is just as dangerous to those who are around it so it makes sense to start "controlling" wea you can light up.

But why not ban smoking in vehicles?

It's da exact same premise as texting/talking on your cell phone since you're not "hands free" but even more so since you're undah an "intoxicant". It alters your state of being and curbs your "cravings" all da while creating a distracting environment while propelling a motorized vehicle.

Hmm, kinda sounds like drunken driving huh? While not as severe but you are still influenced by da tobacco hence under da influence but yet it is still allowed?

If texting/talking while driving is such a tremendous deal, why not smoking and driving? You cannot say it's not distracting you and you definitely cannot say it's hands-free. In fact I believe it's even a tad bit more dangerous as I've witnessed many a times wen da ashes fall off (watevah you smoking) and immediately your eyes come off da road and you start to try and pat it out before you catch on fire.

Then back in da old days, people actually used to use da ashtray in their vehicle for da ashes. It was like playing a game of 'Operation' wea it's a skill to not dirty your ride while tapping off ashes into da ashtray but sadly now, da environment is da ashtray.

Wassup Wit Dat!

It really no make sense wea da government is on a crusade to stop "distracted driving" wen there are just as many people driving distracted but by a different common method. If you going stop one thing and "save lives" while driving, then do it for all.

I remembah a mo'olelo dat was told to me shmall kid time wen I was in JPO (Junior Police Officer) which I'll nevah forget. At a lowered Stop, a car waited for keiki to cross wen all of a sudden da car lurched forward running a keiki ovah. Why? Cause da cigarette she was smoking fell out of her mouth into her lap and she panicked lifting her foot off da brake.

To me, smoking and driving is da same as texting/talking while driving and probably has a handful of oddah stronger points to support it as well but why it wasn't passed along with texting beats da heck out of me.

Until then, feel free to light up in your ride but at da very least, take care of your butts cause keep in mind, there are people out there working to kick your butt.

    BL,
    Sorry to veer off the topic a little bit but I think the driver of a motor vehicle shouldn't be doing anything except concerning on the road. Some people can't even carry on a conversation with other occupants of the vehicle without being distracted. The two worst examples of driving without fully concentrating on the road are 1) a guy eating a plate lunch on the freeway while resting the box on the steering wheel and his abundant stomach and 2) a woman driving at 60 mph on the freeway while smoking & putting on make-up. I wish I had pictures of these people.

  5. Bowling Buddy:

    Kind of agree with "roach". Got some dangerous people trying to do things other than concentrating on driving. Still see people on their cell phones while driving.


  6. sally:

    Being an long time ex-smoker, I must agree. Just as with talking/texting, I don't know how people concentrate on aiming for the lightup AND the road around them at the same time.

    And ashtray? What ashtray? What lighter? No mo' anymore!
