Thank You For Not Smoking In The Car With Your Kid

It is being reported that The Bangor City Council (in Maine) approved a measure on January 8, 2007 that prohibits people from smoking in vehicles when children are present. The violation will be considered a primary offense, which means police can pull over vehicles if they see somebody smoking with anybody under 18 in the vehicle.

It grosses me out that people even smoke with kids in the car in the first place, so this ban definitely gets my vote. It's frightening that there was enough of a problem that passing a law was necessary to protect children's health.
