I think we as smokers should use common sense when it comes to smoking but do not feel this is the way to go -

I agree Reanie, that smokers should use common sense. The problem is that while you are a responsible person and have good common sense, there are just so many others out there who either don't know better, or don't care. They do not and will no use common sense. There are children who pay the price because of that unfortunately.

Isn't that what she said? "My hometown in Maine is the first in our state to make smoking banned in cars that have children under age 18 in the car. "

And, that is, I believe, just how Bangor's law is written. It's fine by me.

Good, let them fine my father, he always smokes in the car and having my kids doesn't stop him, no matter how many times I've asked him.

Thanks Jenny. You are absolutely right. I should read things a bit more carefully
Since that is the case then I am 100% behind this law.

When will it end? I don't have kids, but, I think that the law makers are the last ones to make moral descisions for the population. In their world it is wrong to smoke near children but it is O.K. to get drunk and send them sexual emails. They should leave it to the parents to control the safety of their childrens enviroment

One doesn't exlude another. I think it's not a good idea to have anything sexual around children, but the fact that there is no law about it, doesn't mean that there shouldn't be some kind of protection for children about smoking. One doesn't exlude another. And yes you are corect parents should control the safety of their kids, no matter if there is or there is not a law.

But when do we say enough micro managing is enough? If we let them go long enough they will be telling us what we are and are not allowed to teach our children. Again I say let parents do the parenting

The problem is that lots of parents don't do the parenting. Look at how many parents do smoke in their cars with their children. Kids are sucking in this dangerous smoke every day.
