SACRAMENTO, CA – A California lawmaker aims to ban smoking in automobiles carrying children, according NBC4 San Francisco. If the bill, proposed by state Sen. Jenny Oropeza, passes and a driver is caught smoking with kids in the car, they face a $100 fine. According to Oropeza’s Web site, Senate Bill 7 would apply to any car with a child younger than the age of 18 in it, even if the car was parked and on private property. The measure includes putting notice of the ban in the California Driver’s Handbook. A Senate committee will review the proposed law in March.
