(SALT LAKE CITY, UT)  —  Utah lawmakers have approved a bill that would penalize adults who smoke inside cars with minors present. Violators would get a warning on the first offense and a $45 fine on the second. The citation would be a secondary offense, meaning that officers wouldn’t enforce the law unless there was a traffic violation to begin with. Supporters say smoking with minors in a car presents an “unacceptable” health risk.
