No smoking in cars with kids law coming.

Be aware of a possible ban on smoking in cars with kids coming in Illinois. Lawmakers approved a measure to do just that this spring. The bill would impose up to a $100 fine on the adult smoking in the car with a young person. Sponsors of the bill say they are worried about the impact of second-hand smoke. Republican Senator Steve McClure says this law can keep kids healthier. “When my mom was a kids, she didn’t have the choice to be in that car and smoke or not,” McClure said. “She (was subject to) second-hand smoke which killed her from lung cancer. But in those days, we didn’t know the dangers of second-hand smoking. These days, we do.” The way the law is written won’t allow police to pull drivers over for only breaking this rule. The Governor will have to sign it to become law.
