Banned! Smoking in cars carrying children to be a criminal offence within a year after MPs overwhelmingly back new law | Mail Online
Do you agree or disagree? I'm not sure if this law is in place in the US.
Personally, I can't believe people do it! I remember being parked up at my local supermarket and the car next to me, all the windows were closed. There were three kids in the back and the guy up front was smoking. Like I said, the window was shut - I was in shock.
I think it's about time they made it against the law.

I believe it is already a law here. And a good one.
"As of 2008, it is an infraction punishable by a fine not exceeding $100 for a person to smoke a pipe, cigar, or cigarette in a vehicle when a minor is present. However, you can't be pulled over just for smoking; there has to be another reason. But it will add money to whatever ticket you get."

David Letterman is retiring. Such great memories of watching him over the past thirty-two years!
It's the law here in Canada as far as I know.

This just became a law here, FINALLY. I am very happy. It made me so sad for the kids that had to sit in that

Huge difference between that and a moral issue, which can be nebulous.
Yes!! Smoking in cars with minors in it should definitely be illegal.
Perhaps you don't realize how bad SHS is, so I pulled up a link you can read about it:
