I do drive a car, and yes it does pollute the air, however, I must say that I have never had my clothing or hair saturated with the fumes from automobile exhaust. I suppose it is possible, and I am sure some people are sensitive to those types of pollutants. I still say, cigarette and cigar smoke is concentrated in enclosed spaces, and harmful to those subjected to it against their will.
For years, I have had to suffer by breathing the air that others have deliberately took upon themselves to saturate with cigarette and cigar smoke. My only option was to isolate myself within my home, as that was the only place I had a "right" to control. Why do smokers think that it is their "right" to pollute the air of those around them, anywhere they go! The Capitol building is a public building, no matter what side of the fence you are on. The public has a right to access in a smoke-free environment. I guess the smoker's don't like a taste of what I have been dealing with all my life...........
