    Question Vaping and driving

    I used to smoke the most when I was driving; As much as twice the amount of analogs than normal, on long trips. So when I'm driving I use analog look-alikes, cause they seem to be the safest while driving. Does anyone else vape while they're driving, and if so, what kind of PV do you use? Is it safe to drive?
    I'm also a little paranoid about drawing attention from police cars, since my ecigs are pink and might be mistaken for who knows what other kind of device. Am I the only paranoid one in this particular aspect?

    I will not hide. I use a custom, bottomfeed PV. I was told, recently, that it looks like I'm ______ (insert drug reference). I have a legitimate purpose in using my PV. It's safer than smoking, even while driving. I won't burn holes in my car's upholstery, for sure!

    i do it all the time while driving and use the ego-c black batteries. Normally i have the window down because many times the car gets filled with clouds of vapor. I think that some cops are starting to use ecigs, yesterday i was at a local ecig shop and saw a sheriff's deputy buying liquid and cartomizers

    fuzzie I used to smoke heavily while driving so I do the same with vaping. I use an assortment of MOD's and do not hide it. As for your question about safety ------ We have way too many distractions while driving so I use tanks or bottom feeders. I make sure they are full and have 2 or more handy in my cup holder. That way I do not have to fiddle with anything and can keep my eyes o the road. hapy vapes to you and if you ever do get pulled over then you will at least get the chance to inform one more officer of the law that we are not using anything illegal and you will be saving the next vaping bandit from getting pulled over

    I just feel like if I was using one of my larger mods that I'd be completely distracted. Don't wanna become a typical female driver! (jk jk) I normally use tanks, anyway, so that would work out very well! Thx for the suggestion! That's a good way of looking at it, about being pulled over. Though cross my fingers it never happens in the first place.

    I've been paranoid about police thinking it's something else but never even thought about safety until a couple weeks ago, was stopped in traffic and hit from behind real hard and pushed me into the next guy in front of me. I had just vaped off my ego with vv2 5 secs before.

    I will say it hasn't stopped me but it really has got me thinking about having 7 inches of metal up by my face or in my mouth while driving with an airbag that blows up in one one hundredth of a second right in front of it. It's a risk I guess, but so is riding a motorcycle, I'd be dead for sure if I was on a bike that day but I'm not going around telling people to trade their bikes for big trucks or vans.

    E-cigs are no big secret anymore ...
    There a tons of e-smokers out there (just not all openly vaping in public)

    I vape EVERYWHERE and ANYTIME I feel like it (period)
    That doesn't mean I always blow huge vapor clouds
    spraintz, vsummer1 and xanderxman like this.

    Well, as to being on the road, risk is always present, and risk is shared, with every other driver on the road. So half of it is out of our hands, like being rear-ended. There's only so much we can do, sometimes. I'm sorry that you were in an accident. That really sucks.
    Maybe when I'm more comfortable with vaping (it's only been 3 months for me, and only 1 month since I got my vtube) I'll be able to do that while driving. But I'll still be paranoid about the police!

    I wish I could be that confident about it! Maybe someday...
    I've never been pulled over before, so maybe that's why I'm so nervous about it!
