but rather than me explain your own post to you, let's all have a look at it. i will emphasize the salient portion for your reading pleasure:
again, withdraw your foolish post, which would present that cigarette smoke is harmful while auto exhaust fumes are not
I was warned by admin about making personal attacks, so I will just leave it at this -. Live and let live. No one is looking to you to be the moral arbiters of morality, health or ethics. In fact, many might think it quite appropriate if you could limit your judgements to yourselves on these matters. I would suggest you'd me doing the rest of us a favor by sparing us your self-righteousness. Thank you.
All these things are laws to prevent harm. But those who do these things are not necessarily going to cause harm just because they do these things or break these laws, especially the open container one.
We do however have solid support for the fact that second hand smoke is harmful, especially to children. Even you admitted that earlier in this thread. If it is harmful to children, then we should try to limit their exposure to that smoke where we can, especially when there is an alternative to the activity. A person does not have to smoke in the car.

With your misreading of my post, your responses are invalid.
I said cigarette smoke is different than car fumes. [Notice all I said was "different."] I also said secondhand smoke can still cause cancer over enough time. [Notice that I didn't say car fumes can't, over any period of time.] Thus, my statements are factual, and you misread my posts.
Show me exactly where and how you claim I compared cigarette smoke and car fumes. All I said was that they were different, because they are not absolutely the same in every single regard.
Now, I think it is time you "withdraw" your posts, Bubba.
allowing toddlers to stand in the passenger seat of a moving car (for example) is stupid parental behavior which should not be tolerated
sometimes we must step in and protect the child from the parent's recklessness
in the matter of second hand smoke, the cost of government intrusion outweighs the potential health benefits which might otherwise accrue
