3 3 Just filed today in the Florida legislature .. a bill to ban smoking in your car when a child is present. It is the work of a local house member .. who says his goal is to save the lives of hundreds of children who are often forced to breathe in second hand smoke. However .. like all anti-smoking proposals .. this one is stirring up some passionate opposition. Channel 4's Tarik Minor is joining us live with both sides of this controversy. 3 3 According to recent studies, it only takes few minutes for the second hand smoke to damage a childs lungs, but some smokers and non smokers say their car is their own private space, and the should be able do what they want in their property. 3 00-0514-1934-391:04-1:081:21- 1:26Smokers - already banned from lighting up in restaurants and airports, may have yet another place where they can't take a drag. Their own car.04:58:07"i think that's ridiculous, that's your private space, as bad as it is for the child, the morale thing to do is not to smoke in front of a child, but they shouldn't be telling you what to do on your private property."Non smoker Ed Jones says it's a personal right issue, that the government should just - butt out. Representative Charles Mcburney authored the bill, and he says children's lives are at stake. 04;52:008"there was a study that showed that smoking in automobiles are 60 times more dangerous than smoking in someones home and even 27 times more dangerous than smoking in a smokers home."Mcburney says the levels of pollution measured in a car filled with cigarette smoke are higher than the pollution found in smoke filled bars. Smoker Kammie Workman says if the bill passes, smokers will have a hard time saying no, when they're driving in their car.04:54:43"sometimes that the only time they can smoke in a car on the way somewhere"Even though Workman smokes, she says she agrees with the proposed bill because she says children are innocent victims. As the bill makes it way to lawmakers desks, it's clear this controversy is just heating up. 04:57:13"yeah, i'm against the law period especially when it's ignorance and it's a way to make money off of taxpayers yeah." 04:51:43"It could be a tremendous harm for our children, this bill is all about children." 3 What kind of punishment will an adult be facing if they smoke in a car with a child present?
