What will be next?

Well it now seems that smoking behind the wheel of a car may lead to the risk of prosecution. Read here about the new rules in the highway code.

For may read will. This It is another easy crime for our local paper pushers to solve. More ticks in the boxes and a clearly bad person given another reason to kick the evil weed. It's for their own good.

So you can't smoke in a company vehicle because the fairy police say so but they have clearly been wondering how do we make that cover all cars? Easy you simply say they are doing something else bad that we believe needs to stop. They guys need both hands on the wheel. I think I might get a car for a disabled person so I can smoke. Wonder how that will work?

You notice it also says loud music and passengers. That will make interesting police reports. 'I noticed the suspect talking to his passenger and in my view the driver were not in full control of the vehicle' Book em Danno. Another successful crime solved and box ticked one.

If only they put the same zeal into solving real crimes the UK would be a paradise. But of course the real criminals would not give up so easily nor can they pay as much and, the clincher, would be unlikely to end up inside.

Won't be long before they limit how much oxygen we can consume in one breath and how many breaths in a minute. Fat people breathing heavily would be forced to get by on less oxygen or lose weight. Of course politicians would have special exemption because, well just because they are oxygen thieves anyway.

On the plus side, you never know who will get caught in the "smoking whilst driving" or "driving under the influence of Rastafarian music" (NTNOCN sketch). Remember Al Capone got busted on a tax evasion charge.

Henry, Good point but we both know that this will become another hammering of the general public like speed cameras and the real crooks, even if it was Al Capone, will never even get busted.

Its pure madness of course and I am ignoring it! I suggest everyone who believes in freedom takes up smoking in the car in order to annoy the ridiculous government!

Think you've hit the nail on the head here, Bag.

South Australia currently bans smoking in the car when kids are in it. I doubt that they would go to the next stage.
