Here in Connecticut they are trying to pass a law that makes it illegal to smoke cigarettes in a car with children in car seats. Sorry I don't have a link though. I really hope it goes through. It's about time!

    Probably because it would be difficult to enforce. I think they are making it an extension of the car seat laws.

    in maine it's illegal with anyone under 16 in the car. 

    I think nanny state laws are bullshit. There arent enough cops to enforce the laws, it is too easy to hide a cigarette while driving, and most people who are stupid enough to smoke in the car wiht kids arent going to listen to the laws. None of the smoking families I know do anyway... and like I said, we are in maine where it is illegal to smoke in the car wiht ANYONE under 16 in the car

    Here in Ontario, Canada, you can't smoke it a car with someone under 18 or around any public building within 10 yards of any entrance

    Va did that recently, can't smoke with kids under 15 in the car. According to my MIL It's illegal here in NY too. I don't know the age limit though.
