The Directorate General of Traffic (DGT), taking advantage of the Operation Return of summer and the beginning of the month of September with more displacements than usual to those who are back at work and the children starting school, remember through the panels informative to drivers that "smoking driving can kill you in two seconds."

"Turn on, pull the ash off the cigarette... it's all cause distractions and puts at risk the road safety", explains Fernando Perez , the Spanish Society of Medicine of Traffic (SEMT). Point out that lighting up a cigarette takes 4,1 seconds, which implies that will flow without concentration, and full attention on the road; besides the fact that driving at 100 km/h, travel 113 meters without mindfulness on the road , with a high risk of suffering a traffic accident.

Also, fumárselo requires about three or four minutes, that is to say, "six miles with a single hand well placed on the steering wheel, which in normal situations, it is dangerous in and of itself," says the doctor, José Luis Díaz Maroto , coordinator of the working group on tobacco of the Spanish Society of Primary Care Physicians (Semergen).

The 60% of accidents and 30% of fatalities are caused by distractions, and smoking is a frequent cause of distraction. In addition, "tobacco smoke impairs motor ability and cognitive, is have less glare just when you need it the most and so it is easier to suffer an accident," adds dr. Carlos Jimenez president of the Spanish Society of Pneumology and Thoracic Surgery (SEPAR).
