    A law like this? I highly doubt it. They would be putting their child (or someone else's child) in danger just to protest a law. And even if there are a few who would do such a thing, there would be many more who would obey the law to avoid the repercussions.

    considering all the stupid **** my parents allowed us to do as kids, I'm surprised I lived to adulthood.

    smoked around us
    let us ride in the car without a seatbelt
    let us ride in the back of a pickup truck
    ride bikes without wearing shoes or helmets

    Plus, people are assuming that this law just applies to the driver (I just realized this line of argument). This applies to all riders of the vehicle (I'm pretty sure anyway). So what about if you have more than one person smoking and one is in the back, with your/their children? Are you going to tell say only those up front can smoke, while those in the back can be fined?
    Oooh, another Californian. Ya'll realize that it was you that opened tofu restaurants and made the smokers go away?

    I don't have a minivan. Glad you asked.

    Irrelevant, because we know it's deadly anyway.

    Do a little more research. I'm a North Carolinian. I live in California right now because this is where my husband is stationed.

    No, I'm saying by the time a problem comes about whatever evidence left behind by their parents activities will be long gone. It wouldn't even matter if it wasn't gone since you still couldn't show that it came about because of their parents smoking.

    Laws are different and in place for different reasons, and have different affects. Protesting those laws take different forms as well.

    So you know you can't prove cause and effect and you want to go ahead anyway.
