What about an employee's right to smoke in their own vehicle on their own break?

It's not so much to do with the "vehicle" itself, but rather the location on the property. Property owners can dictate these things. Just as you can ask someone not to smoke in your house, but rather on your back porch, the employer can dictate where you smoke. Can you drive down the street for your smoke breaks?

Thank you; I was told by law enforcement that they believed it was illegal to refuse us the right to smoke in our own vehicle, so I thought to ask an Attorney.
