COMMENT - How to stop it?

EVEN the most ardent smoker would be hard pushed to justify an argument that would go against making smoking while driving with children illegal.

However, as pointed out by pressure groups, enforcing it will be the problem. Similarly driving while using your mobile phone is illegal but we all pass people doing it on a daily basis, despite the fact that you can get a blue tooth system for as little as £20.

Like all such laws the enforcement is the main problem and police do not have the time or resources to deal with it.
