Chief narcologist of Russian Federation supported the ban on smoking while driving.

Chief narcologist in the Ministry of Health of Russian Federation Evgenii Brune supported the idea of banning smoking at the wheel of the car, reported “Interfax”.

“Any smoking distracts driver’s attention from the road. Such a ban would help to save lives. Hypoxia in a secluded space lowers attention, worsens the reaction,” – said Brune.

Previously, Russian Union of Youth came out with the corresponding initiative.
