    I don't have any problem with the ban. Second hand smoke in an inclosed space like that is very unhealthy. You may as well be letting your kids smoke with you. This has nothing to do with personal freedoms or parental rights either. You do not own your kids. You are responsible for their health and welfare. However your kids are not just some property you own.

    I'm here to say - I can't find fault with this at all, except for wondering why 8 years old is the cut off. Why not 12 or 14? Why 8?

    Who here will defend the right of the adult to subject their child to smoke inside a confined space like a car?
    Damn I voted too fast. I agree the age should be older.

    re: Smoking Illegal With Children In Car[W:501]

    I agree that it's deplorable to smoke around children, but do we really need Big Gubbermint stepping in to keep children safe and healthy on THIS level? Isn't that what parents are for? Personally, I don't want to live in a country where bureaucrats wipe people's noses and change their diapers. People can't be protected from themselves, and unfortunately no matter how unfair it is, children are subjected to social darwinism. If they are born with morons as parents, their lives will probably suck. But at what point does society continue to intervene? And where does it end?
