Smokers have fewer and fewer places that are considered a safe haven. And if Ohio lawmakers have their way, another one may soon be severely limited.According to The Columbus Dispatch, a bill is currently circulating in the Ohio legislature that would ban smoking in cars that have passengers under six years old.
The concern is the concentration of second-hand smoke on young people because the child has no way to escape the harmful smoke.
Surprisingly, the bill has bipartisan support and is expected to receive more hearings in the Ohio Senate. This comes at the same time during which a bill banning texting and driving is not moving at all in the Senate.
That bill is stuck because there is an argument as to how an officer can tell if someone is texting or just dialling a number.
If the smoking restriction passes in Ohio, look for it to gain national attention and possibly spread to other states.
