Using a mobile device while driving in Singapore is illegal. Smoking while driving a vehicle should also be banned (Clamp down on taxi and private-hire car drivers who smoke in their vehicles, May 21).
Holding a lit cigarette while driving is dangerous. What if, for example, a driver were to accidentally drop the cigarette, panic and take his hand off the wheel while the vehicle is moving?
A ban would also remove the danger of smokers throwing still-burning cigarette butts out of their vehicle windows.
