LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Smoking can be a safety issue

In reference to the letter to the editor regarding cigarette smoking by road construction workers while on the job, the concern over throwing cigarette butts into the woods is very valid. But, the bigger concern I have is the distraction that smoking presents while controlling and monitoring various traffic situations. I am wondering how the insurance carriers for the paving companies feel about the liability of their employees being occupied with something besides the road work. Smoking on the job is a safety issue – wake up, people
