Buttheads Butt Heads ‘Bout Butts

No butts behind wheel? N.J. moves on smokers
Many smokers angry over push to ban drivers from lighting up

God bless the Garden State and all who live there. How do you put up with this stuff?

TRENTON, N.J. – Ashtrays have been disappearing in cars like fins on Cadillacs, and so could smoking while driving in New Jersey, under a measure introduced in the Legislature.
Although the measure faces long odds, it still has smokers incensed and arguing it’s a Big Brother intrusion that threatens to take away one of the few places they can enjoy their habit.
“The day a politician wants to tell me I can’t smoke in my car, that’s the day he takes over my lease payments,” said John Cito, a financial planner from Hackensack with a taste for $20 cigars.

New Jersey Assemblyman John McKeon, D-Essex sponsored this well-intentioned, weasel-reasoned piece of legislation. Let your representative know where you stand, via email…or smoke signal. You are going so left coast, dudes.

    I’d like to see the State Troopers pull over this motorist in his Caddy and tell him to stub his stogie.

    We’re not trusted to pump our own gas in this state, I’m surprised that smoking, eating, drinking and talking to passengers while driving haven’t been banned yet.

    What a crock of shit.

  4. Hmmmm, I think we should introduce legislation banning potty mouths on blogs in New Jersey, too.
    Do it for the children.

    Crappy New Jersey™, driver’s division. Hey boys, instead of worrying about our behavior on the roads, why don’t you actually FIX THE ROADS! Are you getting a cut every time somebody sells new shocks or repairs a destroyed suspension system?

    “Are you getting a cut every time somebody sells new shocks or repairs a destroyed suspension system?”
    My knowledge of NJ is limited but suggests the affirmative.

  10. That’s New Jersey-ial profiling, you left coaster. It ain’t all lik dat, so turn off the Sopranos already.
