E-cigarettes and driving

When it comes to e-cigarettes, there are a number of potential reasons why they can be dangerous behind the wheel. First, these devices can be very distracting, and distracted driving has claimed countless lives over the years. Aside from taking a driver’s attention off of the road, they can also result in intoxication. For example, someone who is inexperienced with these devices may become dizzy or feel lightheaded behind the wheel, which can be very dangerous too.

The use of e-cigarettes, also known as vape pens, is especially prominent among young adults and teenagers, some of whom may be inexperienced drivers as well. As a result, the potentially distracting and intoxicating effects of e-cigarettes can be especially dangerous for younger drivers. If you have a child who likes to vape, it is important to discuss these risks with them and make sure that they stay safe and focused while driving.

If you were hit by a driver who was vaping at the time of the accident, you may want to look into legal action and consider your options. A negligent driver who causes an accident for any reason should be held responsible, and you may be able to gain access to compensation that can help if you are struggling with medical costs, consequences brought on by an injury, etc.

Sadly, vaping and other distractions will continue to cause crashes in the coming years. Visit our motor vehicle collisions section to access more information on legal issues concerning accidents on the road.
