As many people set off for holidays with their family a new survey suggests that these journeys might all be smoke free in the future.
A study by Flexed showed even smokers think puffing on a cigarette in a car is not acceptable.
Nine out of 10 (89%) of smokers say lighting up a cigarette or any form of tobacco should be banned in cars. 96% of non-smokers believe smoking in cars should be outlawed.
Some smokers said they were in favour of the ban as it might help them to quit smoking, while only a tiny minority said it was an erosion of their civil liberties to impose a ban.
Studies show that smoking is a distraction activity that can be just as disruptive to driver concentration as using a phone at the wheel and that smokers are 1.5 times more likely to have a motoring accident than a non-smoker.
