    I don't smoke, I've never smoked and I never intend on starting. I honestly couldn't give 2 shits if someone puffs a durry in their own car so long as they don't dick it out the window or throw their butt out. Use an ash tray or a plastic bottle half full of water. I also doubt smoking while driving decreases your attention to the road so why ban it? What's next, a ban on picking your nose because you don't have 2 hands on the wheel? Give me a break.

    That I 100% agree with. I've seen heaps of idiots turfing there butts out on the hw on a stinking hot day. Doesn't take a brain surgeon to figure out what that would cause. If I smoke in one of my cars I always have a bottle qtr full of water and put the butts in that.

    I recall ACT Police posting on Twitter that the fine for (if I recall the correct term) "littering causing injury or death" was up to 2 years in prison. In other words, if it can be proven that your lit butt caused a serious fire you might as well buy shares in Durex because you're going to get butt fkd.

    Throw a smoke butt out the windows in victoria and get caught/seen its a $790 fine.

    Its why i keep an ashtray in mine, #### paying that.

    As for why i know that, i sold a car and the prick hadn't transferred it and i got one in the mail, forwarded it on and rang vicroads to force the rego change.

    Now there's an incentive to not smoking , personally , I think if people want to smoke go for gold , but if they throw a butt out of the window, make them eat a packet of Marlboro red .

    I just wondered how a smakers pack question could have gone on this long so had a read. Now I know :hmmm:. Hope this is not how SaUte feels :poke::blah blah: (hes the poor OP in the middle) If so many have such strong views on a topic why not start a thread of your own? It could be in a sub forum like "My dislike for (insert topic here)", or "How to go off on a tangent" ?

    Whoops, ill just go back to bed and get out the right side next time. Please, continue.

    Its like a s pac commodore except its known as a smokers pac instead geez don't you know anything.... . It has special build numbers and is worth more if you happen to own one. Best way of telling if you actually own one is to check if you have a cigarette lighter installed and perhaps an ashtray. If you do you are legally allowed to smoke in your smokers pac commodore as much as you like. Hope this has answered your question.

    Does that mean if I put one in my sv6 it will be a svs6?

    The only "PAC" I knew that smoked was this one

    Gotta admit it made me read it but man did it go pear shaped quick, put it down to christmas spirit or my lack of. You are right the JC commoradery is alive and well, in retrospect i see people enjoyed it. Sometimes i just feel sorry for OPs but this shouldnt have been one of those. Just dont throw ya butts out da windy an start a bloody bushfire ya bastds.

    PS a smakers pack is an UV interior light.

    Well, I finally got it working !
    Found the problem while fixing a glitch with the power windows.
    The reason the light didn't come on was that there was no earth wire !
    Soldered a wire to the the vacant plug on the light and ran it to a bolt under the dash and works fine, now I can find the lighter when I light up at night in MY car :p
    Cue anti smokers,lol

    Good on you for smoking in your car and being able to butt it out inside your car and no throwing it on the road for someone else to clean it up or pollute our waterways.

    You're a champion for doing your bit for the world.

    Glad you got it sorted ... Finally
