How cool is this? Today Bangor, Maine is instituting an ordinance which bans smoking in cars if there are children under the age of 18 present. The police have the right to stop the car and the smoker could be fined $50.
This should be done everywhere, and $50 is not enough for the damage that people do to kids with second hand smoke. It makes me crazy when my little girls have to pass a cigarette when walking down the street. How people can subject their kids to this poison in a small environment is beyond me!
I only wish that the nincompoops on the Alexandria City Council would introduce this legislation!
