Smoker: Puerto Rico bans smoking in cars with kids
Puerto Rico has made it a crime to smoke in a car with any minor on board.
Violators now face a $250 fine for lighting up in a car when someone under the 18 is present, raising the age limit from a 2007 law that set it a 13.
All of the fines collected will be used to fund a pediatric health center, according to the Associated Press.
Eight U.S. states (Ark., Calif., La., Maine, Ore., Utah, Vt., and Va.) have enacted similar laws with age limits ranging from 8 to 18, and Ohio is currently considering legislation that would penalize smoking in a car with children under 6 with a fine of $500.
