All I found was the law, not the consequences. I would imagine it would be enforced the same way speeding, and other motor vehicle violations are. I would also imagine the repercussions would be a ticket or a fine.
Protection for people under 16 years old in motor vehicles
9.2 (1) No person shall smoke tobacco or have lighted tobacco in a motor vehicle while another person who is less than 16 years old is present in the vehicle. 2008, c. 12, s. 1.
Well I may be out numbered here..... I am not a smoker but Ido believe in people’s rights! Until you or the government pays for my car, mycar insurance, and my plates etc..... That is the day you and them will tell mewhat I can and can’t do in my car! I have children and understand that smokingis not good for them. However how many of us grew up with smoke all aroundus..... I turned out ok! I guess what I am saying is each person should be ableto do what they feel on or in their property! Next they will tell you that you can’thave a margarita with dinner and if they banned that I bet you still have oneand you will still drive after one! Thatis illegal! Let’s quit giving them all the power!<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />
Long before I had dd, I stopped smoking around kids...even outside...when one of my neighbor's kids came up with one of those cylinder shaped blocks pretending it was a cigarette. I was mortified!
I wasn't the only one they saw smoking, though, and other still do smoke around these kids, I was just so horrified that they were imitating it, I made sure they never saw ME do it again.
Like I said in the earlier statement I am NOT A SMOKER......So don’t tell me what I should do for my children because I can assure you theyare safe. All I am saying is just because you don’t like something or disagreewith something does not mean you have the right to take it away! Yes it is yourchoice not to be around it but leave people the hell alone and let them do whatthey want with their things and their bodies. I can understand that the worry is for the children but I disagree withthat is should be considered abuse and the government should step in and takecare of these kids. Our wonderful government will never ban tobacco because ofall the money they make on it!<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />
Children are particularly vulnerable to the effects of secondhand smoke because they are still developing physically, have higher breathing rates than adults, and have little control over their indoor environments. Children exposed to high doses of secondhand smoke, such as those whose mothers smoke, run the greatest relative risk of experiencing damaging health effects.
