I quit smoking, so this dosn't really have much effect on me personally, but I think that telling someone they cannot smoke in their car (regardless of where the car is) is too much.
The local hospital here has the same policy, and I think it is a bit much.
People don't want their doctor or nurse smelling like cigarette smoke - I can totally understand this. (Now that I've gone almost 6 months without a smoke, I realize how stinky that stuff really is to non-smokers).
People don't want a crowd of smokers right outside the front (or ER or whatever) doors - I can understand this. Besides the fact that people have to run the "smoke gauntlet" (As some folks are very sensitive to smoke), smoke will tend to get 'sucked' into the building when the doors are opened.
But why can a person not smoke in his/her car??
Come on people - this isn't high school, and I'm not a kid. I'll do whatever I want in MY car. (Thank you very much.) :kiss
I don't smoke, but I say ROCK ON, car smokers!!
