Gotta love Georgia. Why don't they replace that "divisive" flag with one that has a pacifier on it?Originally posted by: dmcowen674
New Georgia anti-smoking Law:
If you are caught smoking in a car with small children you are committing a crime:
2-5-2004 Bill Bans Smoking in Cars With Kids
The measure would be the nation's first ban on smoking in private vehicles...
The measure would allow police to pull over drivers for smoking while driving children in a car safety seat, required in Georgia for children under age 4.
?[A] friend of mine saw a little kid gasping for breath in a car where a man was smoking a pipe,? he said. ?They?re young, they can?t roll down their windows, they have no defense.?
Smith, when asked if the proposed law would be violating the personal space of a private citizen, said, ?I realize some of them fell that way, but we told them to put car seats in for the kids, didn?t we? So, what?s the difference??
No other state makes it a crime to smoke in private cars, although Indiana and New Jersey have laws against smoking on school buses...
