Smoking, really?

As I was driving back from the post office on Canwood Street in Agoura Hills waiting for the light to change onto Kanan Road, I observed a smoker in their car holding a lit cigarette outside their window.

The incompat ibil i ty of Brookview Ranch and Triunfo Canyon Vineyards with their loud, outdoor evening business in our residential neighborhood is obvious, but the county allows it to continue every weekend.
