Should Smoking In Cars With Children Be Illegal? [POLL]

Lets be honest…I don’t always make the healthiest decisions and I’m defiantly not the best parent in the world, but I think smoking in your car with your children is terrible! Lawmakers in Oregon agree.

As of yesterday the Oregon House passed Senate Bill 444 in a 43-15 vote. The bill would allow police to ticket smokers with kids in the car if they were pulled over for another offense. The violation would cost $250 for the first offense and $500 for subsequent offenses.

Rep. Mitch Greenlick, D-Portland, said “I think this bill is really an important bill,” Greenlick said.

Rep. Jim Thompson, R-Dallas said he understood the criticism some lawmakers lodged at the legislation, but believed it was time to take one more step in reducing public exposure to second-hand smoke.

“This is a bill whose time has come,” Thompson said. “We clearly know the effects of second-hand smoke on health.”
