I'm a smoker. I wish I wasn't. We all know how awful smoking is for us, etc. I guess that isn't what this thread is about though. I'm wondering about regulations where you all live. Particularly, our new hospital is opening in January. The entire property will be smoke free, requiring a very long walk to either a highway on one side or a busy road to the university (with only a small gravel side to the road) on the other side. The part that strikes me really is that they will be ticketing if you smoke inside your vehicle in the parking lot, no matter how far from the hospital proper, even with windows rolled up etc. I don't have a car so it doesn't affect me anyhow, I'm just wondering what people think about regulating smoking within personal property such as vehicles. We have a great law now that you cannot smoke with minors in the car. I think that is great. But I guess I wonder how people feel about having regulations imposed on them for what they can or cannot do within their vehicle depending where your vehicle is located.
