I'm a smoker, but I will never smoke inside the house or the car. I smoke outside and far away from my kids or any kids.
Don't you think it is time for parents to make this call? Next they will want to ban all cleaning products that give off an odor! If the state wants control of your car or home then they need to pay all cost for them!!
I voted no because I feel like if I purchased my vehicle with my OWN money I should be able to do as I please in MY vehicle. Yes secondhand smoke is bad and the toxins are harsh, but I would say no smoking in the car with an infant (0-1 yr) but I feel after a child turns 1 the decision should be up to the owner of the vehicle. I believe people are just trying to make new laws as a way to receive more money to build or pay for unnecessary things. Again worried about the wrong things going on. Instead of trying to ban smoking in cars with kids. Do something about all these police officers killing unarmed suspects. Give them better training classes to where instead of shooting to kill, they're shooting to disarm or stop the suspect from evading. Smh its more important things going on and they're worried about smoking in the car with kids. This is RIDICULOUS!!!
I voted no, because what's the point? If you ban smoking in cars to keep the toxins away from children, wouldn't you also have to ban smoking in homes? People are still going to be smoking around their kids. And if people have to stop often to smoke, doesn't that increase the risk of accidentally locking your kid in the car while you step out to smoke? It also just seems like one of those laws that wont really be enforced or followed for that matter. And what is the age cut off? 10, 15, 16, 18? I know some 18 year olds that look 14, will people be getting pulled over constantly to check to make sure the "child" in the car is over 18 and allowed to be around cigarette smoke?
Harming yourself is one thing. Harming those that are in our charge because they are not yet capable of taking care of themselves - and depending on us to fulfill that mission - in another story.
Are they going to try to make it illegal to stop smoking in your own home with kids too, i don't personally do it, but come on.
It should be common sense not to expose children to toxic chemicals. Would you lock your child in the bathroom with you while you bleach everything? Since common sense is not very common, it should me made illegal to harm children like that. It's child abuse!
How can you stop someone from doing something that is legal to do in their own property.
