Should We Fine Drivers Who Smoke With Kids In The Car? [Poll]

Flickr.com/joka2000

Oregon Governor John Kitzhaber recently signed a bill that prohibits drivers from lighting up a cigarette if a person under 18 is also in the car. The new law carries a maximum fine of $250 for the first offense.

Is this really a good idea or is Big Brother being too overprotective?

Supporters of the bill said secondhand smoke is a health hazard and children shouldn’t be harmed by their parents’ bad decision to smoke while critics said the state shouldn’t regulate what drivers do in their own cars.

I’m all for protecting our kids from the dangers of second-hand smoke, especially young children, but is this is one step closer to the government being able to tell us what we can and can’t do in our homes?

What do you think?
