It's about time. If someone wants to smoke in a vehicle they own, that's fine. Smokers have no right to smoke in vehicles in which other people are endangered by this terrible addiction.

This law should have been passed years ago! Taxpayer-owned vehicles should be kept in as clean a condition as possible. When someone smokes in a vehicle, that smoke permeates the interior and is impossible to remove, leaving a very unpleasant odor. Smokers have no right to inflict the results of their disgusting habit on others.

Your "rights" don't include hurting other people. Second-hand smoke kills!

No, I don't own a gun. I support people right to have one, but they need to be responsible with it. We all eat, but what we eat only hurts ourselves. The smokers can take their filthy habit somewhere else.

You are so right, Jackson County. Smoking kills innocent people.

LOL! That is funny - I know that the government can be too intrusive at times, but in this instance, I support it.

The idiots have nothing more to do than waste time on this subject. The rules in 1988 were NO SMOKING. And you wonder why the state of NC is in the shape it is in.

Why can I not smoke in a state car but everyone else can spill their sticky drinks all over it and leave biscuit and hamburger crumbs everywhere. Why single out 1 group. Ban smoking, cells, eating, drinking, tobacco chewing, gum chewing, radio listening and everything else. Don't just discriminate against smokers.
