MD Senate votes to ban smoking in cars w/ kids

Drivers in Maryland with young children in the car may have to find somewhere else to smoke their cigarette.

The Maryland state Senate has approved a ban on smoking in vehicles if a child under eight is in the car.

The measure also forbids other passengers from smoking in cars when children are present. Violators face a $50 fine.

The measure, which has had trouble in past years, now heads to Maryland's House of Delegates for a vote.
