    Well, we were talking about cracking the window as a viable solution. Whether or not someone was inconsiderate had no bearing.

    Maybe kids who are forced to ride in cars with smokers can be made into venturi meters...then sell the data collected? That might pay for the negative health effects they might experience later in life.

    It would be fun proving the connection.

    Clearly it should be illegal to smoke while pregnant, right.

    No, I know there would be less because it is illogical to believe more people would start smoking in their cars with children in them with such laws in place, and there are always going to be some people like my father who would not do that particular action (with a lot of grumbling about not being able to) for fear of breaking the law/being fined. As long as there is just one person who would avoid smoking in their car with kids inside to avoid the fine, then that proves that it would reduce the number. Given that we know that many people will obey laws just to avoid fines, particularly laws like this, then it is not going to be just one person, but quite a number. More will be "influenced" to stop the behavior when they end up pulled over or warned or even fined for actually smoking in their cars with children inside.

    Oh, I think that kids who breath in quantities of tobacco tar and compounds will register sufficient levels in order to show a connection.

    Are there any group of people that ever purposely break a law once they know it is a law, because it is a law?
