Just when you thought the intolerance couldn't get any more extreme:
Britain's senior road safety campaigners are calling for a ban on smoking while driving, in an attempt to cut the number of crashes.
The Department of Health said last night that it would seriously consider a ban, which is also being looked at in Germany, Australia and America. The move was backed by anti-smoking campaigners but drew criticism from others as an attack on personal freedom.
Presumably, they will also be calling for a ban on other driver distractions, such as car radios, roadside advertisement hoardings and passengers.
No, somehow I don't think so either.
Hmmm… Hundreds of thousands of motorists deprived of the calming effect of nicotine. Expect a lot more road-rage.
