Why would you take that risk with your children's health? That doesn't make any sense to me. Maybe you could pull over and smoke outside of your vehicle.
    Letting fat kids eat pop tarts and drink pop all day. We need to stop that child abuse too! But that's another thread, I know. . Oh, I just remembered, Michelle is working on that already.

    Yep here too but, I'm proposing a moratorium on the release of technology until human intelligence catches up.

    We are currently in stupid mode.

    At this point I would support a ban on doing ANYTHING while driving. [other than driving itself]

    If it arguably increases the problem it attempts to solve, I tend to err on the side of not.

    Eating while driving while not typically specifically outlawed, MAY be an offence.

    : Is it legal to drive while eating or drinking (non-alcoholic, of course)?

    A: State law doesn’t specifically prohibit eating or drinking non-alcoholic beverages while driving.

    But police say there is another statute that may come into play.

    Drivers can be ticketed for second-degree negligent driving when they are engaged in an activity that “operates a motor vehicle in a manner that is both negligent and endangers or is likely to endanger any person or property,” according to state law.

    That offense carries a $250 fine.


    “Negligent,” according to the statute, “means the failure to exercise ordinary care, and is the doing of some act that a reasonably careful person would not do under the same or similar circumstances or the failure to do something that a reasonably careful person would do under the same or similar circumstances.”

    I support the ban, smoking with children in the car should be considered child abuse.

    A little extreme, digsbe... consider how much pollution kids are exposed to by passing diesel trucks...

    The smoking in the car is a purposeful act though, it can be limited and it does put children in harm.

    That's too funny. Not entirely a bad idea either.
