New bill could ban smoking in cars with children inside

A push by lawmakers could ban smokers from lighting up inside the car when children are inside.

Bills were filed in the Florida House and Senate to ban smoking in cars with children 13 or under inside.

"You would hope a parent would have the smarts to say, ‘I am not going to put my child in danger,' especially with all the scientific evidence proving that second-hand smoke is detrimental, not only to adults but to children during the forming of their lungs," said State Rep. Mike Miller, (R) Orlando.

The legislative session starts Tuesday in Tallahassee.
