Poll: Should smoking in cars when children are present be banned?

Going too far? Or should it have been done years ago?

SENATOR AND DOCTOR John Crown has said he is hopeful that new legislation banning smoking in cars when children are present will be passed before the summer.

While critics may consider the move an infringement on civil liberties, proponents say that it will protect children from second-hand smoke in an enclosed environment.

So what do you think: Should smoking in cars when children are present be banned?

Poll Results:

Yes, it should be banned (6613)
It's pointless because it's too difficult to enforce (1095)
No, it shouldn't be banned (534)
I'm not sure (81)
