    All you have to do is crack the window nearest whoever is smoking. The draft pulls the smoke.

    A tiny, utterly ineffective minuscule amount. Look, we're all adults here. We've all been in the car of a smoker who cracked the window and it doesn't work.

    Then you must be riding with some pretty inconsiderate folks.

    Maybe the venturi effect doesn't work where I am. Gravity and time are different here too.

    Not off topic, actually. This is integral to the point. Smoking and drinking while pregnant can lead to far greater damage than afterwards.

    I'm a smoker and even I can smell (weeks later) when someone has been smoking in a car.

    No reason to be an ass about it. I was just offering my own observations on the matter.

    Some people will obey the law just because its the law. Some will I supposed be ticketed if seen smoking with kids in the car. Beyond that, it adds to the conversation that exposing others to second hand smoke is selfish and unhealthy and is yet one more step in a positive direction.
