Law | Pennsylvania To Ban Smoking In Your Car?
In Pennsylvania, a Democrat from Allegheny County named Dom Costa is sponsoring a bill that would make it illegal to smoke in the car if the children are 12 years or younger, thus allowing the government the right to choose how you raise your children. Wether you agree with this or not, one should take into consideration that America was built on the right to make choices, not on communism which the country seems headed to.
My father smoked, did I pick up cigar smoking because of him. No, I hated the fact that my father smoked and on winter trips with the heat on and the windows up he would smoke. Did that lead me to smoke, no. My cousin did, but that’s another story.
Thankfully some other members of the state legislature believe that this proposal would be overreaching and we must stand up and let them know that this is the case. Silence, only supports their proposal.
According to Senator Pat Vance, Republican from Cumberland/York, “Police have enough concerns without adding whether parents are smoking in front of their children.”
If passed the first offense would cost $100 and the bill is currently in the House transportation committee.
Pennsylvania is home to 12.7 million residents over 46,055 square miles and became a state in 1787.
