Drivers in Oklahoma who smoke with minors in the vehicle may face stiff fines if a bill makes its way through the state legislature. State Senator Randy Bass of Lawton wants to fine adults $100.00 if caught.

Under the bill, it would be a secondary offense which means you would have to be pulled over for another traffic violation before you could face a fine for this offense.

The measure passed out of committee this week, despite the concern that this bill allows too much government intrusion into people’s lives.
