    Most people are reasonable, if you travel with someone who smokes then politely ask if they could refrain but I'm pretty sure most smokers wouldn't light up when in the car with non smokers.

    It's a daft idea and completely unenforceable. If someone wants to kill themselves let them just so long as they don't make me share their cigarette. besides i would rather the traffic police stopped people using mobile phones and tailgating than waste their time on that.

    I know that Australia already has a sort of smoking ban in cars: "In May 2009 it was announced that smoking in cars where children under the age of 16 are present was banned"

    List of smoking bans in Australia - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    I am a smoker, and I do think smoking in a car with kids is wrong.. but Australia has quite a list

    Well, this renewed attack will teach me to stop feeling virtuous about not being obese and not drinking alcohol when the truth is that I'm a walking bag of toxics...best get me little bell out.

    Seems to me the emphasis is just as much on the smoke escaping the vehicle as it is for those they might feel giggle uncontrollably while lighting up a "ciggie" and sporadically rolling up the windows in light of their passengers...

    Quite alot of smokers from my experiences light up regardless so I would suggest the honor game doesn't hold much weight...

    I bet more people light up in cars with kids in them than most realize
