  • I think it's awful to smoke in a car no matter who is in it. It's extremely disrespectful. It's illegal here anyway to smoke with children in the vehicle, thank GOD.

  • I don't smoke but if I did I wouldn't do it in the car or house. It smells and gives people (myself included) headaches. Besides second hand smoke kills.

  • I don't smoke.. but I saw a lady last night.. she was driving, but was digging her nose with one hand, and smoking with the other. I saw a kid int he front seat (not toddler, older than that, but a kid nonetheless) and DH said there was a toddler in the back seat... and all the windows were up. I felt bad for those kids......

  • Anyone who smoked in the car with their kid might as well pass their kid the cigarette.

  • I don't smoke but if I did, I would not smoke in the car with my kids. I don't even let anyone smoke in my car when my kids are not in there. I can't stand it myself...my health is important too. I don't even let anyone smoke in my house for that matter,lol. Yeah..I get all kinds of complaints about it too...especially from my mom and my aunt when they come over. But oh well.

  • I don't smoke but DH does a little bit (usually 2 cigs a day). And NEVER around DD at all. He smokes ONLY outdoors, and changes his shirt to do so. Always washes his hands when he's done, etc. and our DD is 2.

  • I no longer smoke (quit 5 years ago) but when I did smoke I smoked around my children (in the house annd in the car) and all 4 of them are healthy, no asthma, no bronchitis, no ear infections, etc.. They are now adults and are healthy people.

  • I haven't smoked since 1991 but if I had been a smoker when I had my child I would have never smoked in the car or the house with her around. My parent's smoke and they know that when they come to see us they can't smoke in the car and they need to go out on the deck if we're home. I see parent's smoking with kids in the car and think that there seriously should be a law against it. It's one thing if you're in the car alone but with kids....come on people...wake up!!!

    So I suppose that makes it OKAY Anon. since your kids haven't had any ill effects YET from your disgusting and selfish habit? I saw a mom smoking with all the windows up and there was a little baby in a car seat in the back. I wanted to jump through the window and punch her. I actually think its illegal in some areas to smoke with children in the car. Sad that they would have to make a law against something you think most people wouldn't do anyways.
