New Proposal Could Ban Smoking in Cars with Kids

Smokers be warned: you might not be able to light up a cigarette in your car if a child is present. One legislator in New York has introduced a bill that would make it illegal to smoke – secondhand smoke is a proven killer -- in vehicles with children aboard.

Assemblyman David Weprin, has proposed legislation that would make a smoking ban apply to adults with children under the age of 14 in the car, regardless of whether or not the windows are rolled down. Violators might have to pay a fine of up to $100 if they are caught doing so.

Rockland County has already passed a bill and Nassau County is reportedly considering one banning smoking in vehicles with any passengers under the age of 18.

Could Connecticut be next? What do you think about the new law? Let me know here .
