Proposed Bill Would Make It Illegal To Smoke With A Child In The Car

A proposed bill in the senate is aiming to make it illegal to smoke in a vehicle containing a child aged six or younger. Anyone caught would be fined up to $1,000.

The bill has been brought forward by State Senators Jim Merritt (R) and Eddie Melton (D) according to RTV6. After the fourth offense in a year, the fine would be increased to $10,000.

If passed, Indiana would be the 10th state to enact a smoking law like this.
