New Jersey Bill to Ban Smoking in Cars

I am personally not a smoker, and I’m generally in favor of laws that keep the air I have to breathe while working, eating or traveling clear from second-hand smoke. However, even I raised an eyebrow at a proposed law by New Jersey Assemblyman John McKeon to ban smoking in cars.

According to the bill, which will more than likely die well before it gets anywhere near a real vote, the proposed law would fine drivers $250 for smoking cigars, pipes and cigarettes while behind the wheel.
