Smoking in cars with children will be banned in England, under new laws put forward by the government.
The regulations laid before Parliament propose banning smoking in cars containing under 18s.
MPs will vote on the plans before the election, and if they are passed the change in law will come into force on 1 October 2015.
So smoking will be banned in cars with children present. Millions of non-smokers will not care as they do not smoke. Millions of smokers will not care as they do not smoke in front of children. We'll all just sit back and not care while the government creates another law, creates more criminals and gives the police extra work to do looking after our health.
And as stated in my previous post, there's always another 'logical step' with these people:
Dr Hilary Wareing, director of the Tobacco Control Collaborating Centre, says smoking in cars is almost as harmful for children as smoking indoors.
So if indoor passive smoke is more harmful than passive smoke in cars (more of nothing is still nothing), then the next step is to ban smoking in homes.
And millions of non-smokers will not care as they do not smoke and millions of smokers will not care as they already take seven steps out because they've been made to feel guilty.
What will it take before people say no?
