Two days ago I observed a person pull into a gas station smoking a cigarette in the car with the window down about four inches. After the person put the smoke out and got out to fuel the car, I walked over and asked how many kids there were in the car. The person said seven. It was true. I counted. I then said, what a shame, seven of them and not one has a choice whether they smoke that cigarette with you or not. The reply I got was not too surprising. The person said, "I guess I never really thought about it."
If this is something that concerns you please reply, or give your Senator or Representative a show of support.
The goal would be to put into law a fine of some amount with a mandatory educational class on the affects of second hand smoke to minors.
I wonder... was your child in that car?
