    Doesn't mean that it is causing damage either.

    I think the vast majority of people will not let the smoke go into a baby's face. Cars have windows.

    And just because the baby IS crying doesn't mean the baby is hurting.

    Yeah, I know. I wasn't the one who initially claimed that the baby crying had anything to do with it. That was Muhammed. I said that the baby crying or not crying does mean there isn't any kind of damage being done.

    Because some smoke will still get in the car. Can't you smell it? Probably not because you are a smoker, but I guarantee that nonsmokers can smell smoke on your child/children, on you and your clothing and in your vehicle. Besides, why wouldn't you just wait? 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.

    Speaking as a father of 5, I know that's true too.

    I think sometimes they just cry for the exercise. But it sounds different than when they are hurting for something like sleep, nourishment, attention, protection or pain relief.

    The cigarette smell could be from several sources. Could be from smoking while kids are not in the car, could be from ashtray, could be from smoking passengers when kids are not there, could be from the residue on your clothes which transfer to the seats and many many other reasons. I've yet to see smoke in the back of a car when my kids are there. If any does get back there it is so little as to be irrelevent. They'll get worse toxins from the car itself and the cars that are also driving on the road. Indeed you have more chance of getting into an accident than giving a child lung cancer with a window open. If you want to wonder about putting your child at risk then think on that. Unless you live in a bubble house your kids are put at risk all the time. Much of it needless.

    Yeah, I had that thought too, but the car is different in that driving is a priviledge and licensed by the state. Driving is not a private activity. You cannot drink while driving, but you can drink in your home. And it does cause accidents, people aren't hands free when smoking, trying to locate the ashtray, light the cig, etc. I think the state has a legitimate interest here.

    Seriously???? Honestly????

    Are you that blind to what happens in a car???

    Do you have kids?

    Do you restrain then in car seats, then proceed to smoke inside the same car?

    Do you actually do that and think you're not having any effect on them at all?????
