Maine law bans adults from smoking in cars with children

(National-NBC) January 19, 2007 - A new law banning smoking with kids in the car has taken effect in Bangor, Maine.

Under the new law, anyone caught smoking in a vehicle with minors will face a $50 fine.

Advocates say the ban will help children breathe easier, while opponents say it infringes on personal rights.

Several other areas have similar laws covering young children, but Bangor is the first to include everyone under 18.
