    So therefore its okay to just add to the possibility of injuring your kids by forcing them to be a closed in environment where they have to breath secondhand smoke...right?

    Kids have no choice to be in a car or being in a car with a smoker who don't have any regard for their kids health...despite known there is all the evidence in the world that says they put their kids at risk of short and long-term health problems.

    I smoke and smoke in my car (yeah I know disgusting)....but would never smoke in close proximity to a non-smoker period.

    Re: Smoking in Cars

    I wonder which makes more deadly fumes the car or the smoker? Seems like they're banning the wrong thing.

    No. I'm saying that we should focus on real dangers instead of imaginary ones. Car accidents are the number one killer of children under 18. Second-hand smoke ain't even on the radar.

    If we want to ban something in order to protect children, we should ban something that will actually do something useful. The bonus is that banning people from driving their children around will also prevent any of them from being exposed to second hand smoke in the car.

    Kids have no choice to be in a car or being in a car with a smoker who don't have any regard for their kids health...despite known there is all the evidence in the world that says they put their kids at risk of short and long-term health problems.
    By putting their kids in the car, they place that child at far more risk for death and long term injury than second-hand smoke does. The child often doesn't have a choice to be in a car. If it's all about the children, we should simply ban driving with children in the car altogether. Problem solved and now we can actually protect children in the process.

    Actually, cars are a major reason why being out of bed is dangerous. Remove them from the picture, being out of bed would probably only be slightly more dangerous than being in bed.

    To combat children being subjugated to second hand smoke in cars, I propose the parents roll all the windows down fully regardless of weather or temperature. This solves the second hand smoke delima.

    You know something, I haven't been on this website for very long but I have yet to see a post you submit be of any worth or intelligence. Your existence on this website is only to instigate and harass people that are actually looking for level, civil debate. I think you need a serious dose of self-confidence and self-worth because if all you have in your life to make you feel better is to come on this website and try to disavow other's opinions, you're in a bad way. Go to church, a counselor, or some __________ anonymous meeting man. Life isn't that bad.

    Are you being serious or just trying to prove a point? I can't figure it out.
