New smoking fine $100 for driving with children

The state of Illinois has a proposed bill in place that has the lawmakers split. The new bill, if passed would make it unlawful to smoke in a vehicle with anyone under the age of 18 in the vehicle. If caught by the police, the smoker would be fined $100. The thought behind the proposal is to increase awareness of secondary smoke inhalation by children. The pro would be in favor of children's health while the con would be whether the Illinois government regulations have exceeds its reach over the rights of the individual. Personally, I am agree that secondary smoking is bad for anyone's health regardless of age but at the same time, I do not agree that a person should be fined for smoking in their own vehicle.
