Ontarians must butt out before driving with kids

As of Wednesday (today), people who light up a cigarette in a car with some 16 years of age or younger, if caught, will face a $250(Can) fine. Studies have shown that the cigarette smoke concentrations in a car are 30 times higher than in the home due to the enclosed space. As a result, children in cars are exposed to far higher levels than in the home, albeit for shorter periods of time.
