Car smoking ban is quite workable

I SUPPOSE it was inevitable that the proposal to ban smoking in cars in the presence of children would be met by the objection that it is "unworkable", because it would be very difficult to identify the perpetrators.

This specious argument is always trotted out when members of a small, vociferous group face losing their freedom to do harm.

A second's thought would make it clear that on this basis every law is "unworkable", because it is always difficult to identify the perpetrators.
