Stop smoking in cars with children inside!

State legislators have proposed a law – smoking is banned in a car if there are kids inside.

Shay Schual-Berke, State Representative, likens it to drunk driving, explaining they are injuring their children for life if they smoke with them in their car.

She claimed "Did you know that the poisons from secondhand smoke, which we know cause cancer in adults; we know cause asthma and bronchitis in children and adults, is also associated with sudden infant death syndrome? I've seen people smoking and I've watched their children in the backseat coughing."

Some are all for the ban, who say they would never smoke with children inside. That is one of smokers' biggest problems. Who else is going to defend the kids if their parents are not going to do that?

Others say it is an invasion of people's privacy.

One of the parents said "I really do not believe that a government should be insisting on laws like that. It's just a little intrusive now, definitely".

Schual-Berke says "You wouldn't get pulled over just for smoking while your kids are in the car. But you could face roughly a $100 fine if you're caught after you're pulled over for something else. The law is needed to protect children".

Several states, including California and Alabama, already banned smoking in cars with kids. Twenty seven other states are considering a similar smoking ban.
