Do you smoke in your car with passengers in it?

According to Health Day News. "Smoking in cars produces levels of harmful particulate pollutants that are far above World Health Organization indoor air standards and likely pose a threat to children's health, a new study reveals.Dangerous levels of particulate air pollution occur even when the windows are open or the air conditioning is on, according to the findings released Oct. 15 in the journal Tobacco Control." more

When I did smoke, I did not smoke in my car unless the other person smoked. But when I had gotten my new car I didn't smoke at all in it. 

I can't imagine doing that to someone. :(
