SPRINGFIELD, Ill. — Illinois Governor JB Pritzker signed legislation Friday (August 23), which prohibits smoking in vehicles with anyone under 18.

According to Bill HB2276, it will be illegal to inhale, exhale, burn or carry a lighted cigarette, cigar, pipe, weed, plant, regulated narcotic or other combustible substance in a motor vehicle containing a person under 18.

The bill also states prohibiting smoking regardless of whether the vehicle is in motion, at rest or has its windows down.

Anyone who violates the new law will receive a maximum fine of $100 for the first offense. The second offense is not to exceed $250. The new law will go into effect on January 1, 2020.
