Is this another case of the government butting in where they don’t belong?.

If you are a smoker, get ready for another restriction.

Legislation was announced in Lansing on Wednesday that would make it illegal for any tobacco product to be lit in a vehicle when a person under the age of 18 is a passenger. Violators would pay a $500 fine, and as a primary offense an officer could pull a motorist over if they spot a violation.

In a recent poll conducted by the University of Michigan, 82% of adults would support a ban on smoking in vehicles where children under the age of 13 are present.

We want to hear from you. Take the poll below.
