Smoking vs Driving

It occurs me that there are a lot of similarities between smoking and driving a car.

Not so long ago it was socially accepted to smoke in bars, in restaurants, in trains, at work, in the presence of children,… Gradually the insight grow that putting your own addiction above the suffering of others was for several reasons completely not done.

In my opinion the same mentality shift is needed concerning excessive car use. Is it still socially acceptable to pollute air for your own pleasure or comfort and leave the consequences for someone else? For some strange reason the downside of this addiction is still accepted. Hopefully not for that long anymore…
