Smoking in cars should be banned period! You can't eat or drink behind the wheel so why should you be allowed to smoke?

Smoking is not good I agree but I am hooked. Common sense is needed in everything. I don't smoke in the house, even in this weather I go outside, to make yet another law is outrageous. The police have bigger issues to deal with.

Why do we need a ban on smoking in cars with children? It's common sense to most people not to do it.
