    Re: Ban smoking in all vehicles, doctors demand

    The government should simply urge/support non-smoking in vehicles (etc etc), rather than trying to control everyone or turn everything into a vile offense.

    People should ultimately be responsible for their own actions.

    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    Trust me, the same principal is at work.......
    Cap and trade? I support making companies pay up front for the pollution they cause rather than us all paying indirectly for their mess. Also I think we need to provide an incentive to move away from burning a finite resource at our current unsustainable rate. So to answer the question, I think it's a good idea. So did the Republicans when they put forth emissions caps.

    joke Re: Ban smoking in all vehicles, doctors demand

    I think there should be a ban, on people sleeping with their hands under the covers. I think it is affecting their thinking process, what with all the jerking around.

    I would never do that. It hurts like hell, and I can't walk for hours after I do it.

    If it gets them to stop littering, sure! I'd create a special receptacle in my car for that.

    There are places now that will come after mom if she smokes in her own home and towns in California where if you smoke in your own back yard and your neighbor complains you can be fined.

    San Diego band smoking on all beaches.

    It's out of control Nanny State BS.
    NYC has an idiot who wants to ban salt use in all restaurants. Come on people sooner or later this crap has got to stop.

    What happened to the land of the free and the home of the brave.

    We have become the land of the fee and the home of the slave.

    Those who stand for nothing fall for anything.

    Now you're talkin. I smoke 2 packs a week on average. Not a super heavy smoker but I smoke. I do not smoke in my house. I do not smoke in my car. I field dress every cig I smoke and put the butt in the trash ( for the unfamiliar, you roll the cig between your fingers and the cherry falls off).

    I grew up in the forest and do not like to see litter. When I play golf (4-5 times a week), I pick up every butt I see. At the end of most 18 hole rounds I have at least 2 handfuls of butts accumulated in a dedicated pocket in my bag. And this is at the country club, it's at the junk municipal course, it's out at the casino courses. It's everywhere. Oh and I should mention that there is a city wide ban on smoking in all city parks and "outdoor public areas".

    Point is you can sit here and complain about people people smoking. You can try to ban them from smoking everywhere you go. In the end, there will always be jerks that litter and people who break your silly smoking laws. There will always be jerks that are inconsiderate and don't think of others. Smoking itself is not the actual problem... and trying to infringe on someones right to do what they wish with their own body, in hopes of fixing what amounts to a "litter" problem, is shortsighted at best.

    As far as a full on smoking in the car ban goes, good luck enforcing it.

    See bold above. Thank you! I wish there were more smokers like you. I can count on one hand how many people I have seen properly dispose of their cigarette butts in the last year.
