People have been smoking in their cars and driving for decades, perhaps going on a century in the near future. So far, there is no law against smoking tobacco products while driving, at least not outright. Some states or areas may have some regulations regarding cigarettes, cigars, or vapes behind the wheel. 

The most common laws you may see when it comes to smoking and driving are more so about what not to do when smoking behind the wheel. You’re typically not allowed to through butts out the window after finishing them, smoke with a minor in the car, and keep your window open to avoid clouding up the windshield. Above all, maintain your visibility and avoid distracted driving because of smoking. As you may assume, smoking marijuana and cannabis products while driving is illegal across the board, regardless of state legality. 

While smoking when driving won’t affect your car insurance rates, it can indirectly if you’re not careful. Safe and distraction-free drivers tend to pay the least for car insurance.
