Another One Down
If this is approved, what is stopping your own house from being targetted next?
The South Australian Government plans to ban smoking in cars in which children under the age of 16 are passengers.
Smokers caught by police will be fined $75 on the spot, with a maximum penalty of $200 if the matter goes to court.
And the SA government, unlike most others, is not shy about ignoring the lack of evidence of the harm caused by passive smoking:
“These four measures, they are tough but I don’t believe anyone really can refute the importance of them,” she said.
“They are tough and I make no apologies for that – these measures are about saving people’s lives.”
Presumably the lives saved are those of government beauracrats, who would starve to death if it wasn’t for the constant need for developing more and more regulations to control us.
