Smoking In Cars With Minors Is Now Officially Banned In Illinois
There has been a ton going over the past few days, so no big deal if you missed this one.
It's an even smaller deal if you don't smoke and much less so if you don't smoke in the car with kids.
A new ban on smoking in the car with kids under the age of 18 has officially gone into effect as of yesterday, Monday, June 1.
Violating the ban will be punishable by fines of up to $100 for a first offense and up to $250 for subsequent violations. It’s not a primary offense, meaning drivers can’t be stopped simply for that reason.
Makes sense, but then again, this is kind of a common-sense law, right?
