AbstractIn an increasing number of states, it is now against the law to smoke in the car when children are present. One can be fined up to $250 if stopped in a traffic offense and found to be smoking in a car with someone younger than 18 years old. The health benefits are clear, but restricting personal behavior while in a public care has some worried about infringements on personal freedoms.
