Don’t vape and drive.
That’s the message from senior police officers who have warned drivers they could be prosecuted and even lose their licence if they are caught.
While using an e-cigarette behind the wheel is not illegal, breathing thick clouds of vapour into your car can obscure your vision.
Police may decide the act is potentially dangerous, and drivers could be prosecuted for driving without due care and attention. Penalties for the charge include a ban from the roads, points on licence, or a fine of up to £2,500.
