This finding was reached after collision statistics show that collision incidences have not dropped but instead risen in three out of the four states surveyed.

...Bans and Perceived Stress Smoking is dangerous to one’s health. We do not only read or hear this being said but it has been proven to be the cause of illnesses such as cancer, cardiovascular diseases, strokes and etc. Today, as much as there is an increasing number of people who smoke, there is also a widening knowledge on the health risks that come with it. That is why there are smoking bans in public places and smoke-free policies in workplaces. However, though these bans lessen the exposure of people to unhealthy smoke and at the same time lessen the amount of cigarettes a smoker uses up in a day, it is also associated with the self-perceived, work-related stress among smoking...

...Banning of Smoking This paper contends that smoking bans imposed by the government are not justifiable as responses to the failure of markets, as risk reduction measures, or as preference shaping means. Banning of tobacco smoking acts to reduce the welfare of the public, via the prevention of optimal allocation of public places where smoking is permitted as well as areas where it is not permitted. Advocates for the ban on smoking use three arguments: they claim that smoking indoors involves negative externalities, the failure of markets used to justify ambient environment regulation, and the belief that banning smoking aids in shaping the preference of individuals against...
