    I don't smoke but I think the no smoking laws are a load of BS. A business owner should have the right to decide what legal activities they allow on their own property. If I own a bar or restaurant and want to allow smoking that is my business. If non-smokers don't patronize me than that's my problem. I agree on the ban in public areas but not in a private enterprise.

    Its a good law. One of my favorite restaurants was dingy and yellow and smelled of dank smoke. Now that they have gone smoke free, they cleaned up and it smells fresh. I used to enjoy a smoke after dinner as much as the next nicotine junky, but it wasnt that big of a deal to wait until after dinner.

    I think restaurants/bars secretly wanted this. It allowed them to expand their business to having families frequent their establishment - and set a level playing field at the same time. If one business went smoke free in order to gain families for more business - it would lose it's 'smoking' base customers. Now smokers can't go anywhere else. I know a lot of restaurants with bars that do a lot of business now. Now throw in all the laws back in the 80's and 90's that made bars culpable for the actions of it's customers after they leave. And now what you have is a very tame bar atmosphere, where you can have families sitting right near the bar areas and not feel like their children are being exposed to 'lewd' behavior. I think it's been a win/win for restaurants/bars.

    Unable to smoke in California for like 5 years now, maybe more... Just raised the tax on tobacco as well.

    Also, New law I heard, 3 DUI's and your Lic is revoked FOR LIFE !!! You will never again be able to drive in the State. Also, idf you EVER had a DUI in another state, it can be used against you in California no matter how long it has been.

    Hands CANNOT be on your phone when driving as well.

    When you see any ER vehicles on the side of the road, YOU MUST PULL OVER TO THE NEXT LANE away from the shoulder of the ER vehicle. If a cop is giving a ticket, you must move 1 lane away from the officer "WHEN SAFE TO DO SO ". You can be ticketed.
