One of the most dangerous activities you do on a daily basis is getting behind the wheel of a car. If this were not the case, you wouldn’t cringe whenever your teen pulls out of the driveway for the first time alone.
For teens and adults alike, driving is a huge responsibility and being distracted even for one moment can have devastating consequences. Because of the real danger of distracted driving, many states have banned the use of electronic devices, such as smart phones and mp3 players, when operating a vehicle.
However, currently, there are no laws stating that an e-cig is one of the electronic devices that is considered banned. Whether the e-cig is considered a “handheld electronic device” would be up to each individual state.
Of course, that doesn’t mean high ohm vaping in the car is totally safe. We all know that texting and driving is a dangerous mix, but what about vaping and driving?
