Tobacco Use In Cars With Children May Soon Be Banned

Posted: Updated:

LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) - Second hand smoke is already a deadly thing for kids. Now one local lawmaker wants to try to stop it in cars.

Legislation introduced Wednesday by State Rep. Sam Singh would make it illegal for any tobacco product to be lit in a vehicle when a child under the age of 18 is inside.

Anyone caught would face a $500 fine. A number of other states would have similar laws.
