    Should Be Illegal

    It should, my father would do it, but only on our long rides to vacation. Hed open the back windows which made no difference because it sucked in the window and back into the van. Smoke smells absolutely terrible i think everyone know that, and its disgusting a child go through...

    It's Illegal

    Where I live it's illegal to smoke in a car that has minors in it. The smoker can be charged and if the smoker is a parent, further investigation by Children's Aid is likely.I find it sad that this isn't the case in other jurisdictions.

    This Drives Me Batty

    It infuriates me to no end when I see parents smoking with their kid(s) in the car.  And let me tell you, I'm a smoker AND a parent, but I don't think it's okay to subject your kids to your rotten habit.  I know that smoking is bad for me, and I don't care if you...

    Never understood how someone can claim to be devout in their beliefs yet behave in the opposite manner. e.g. A Christian who acts in an unChrist-like manner.

    But young girls are dressing and wearing makeup that make them look older. They don't always know that they're younger and when they do well that's gross.
