It will soon be against the law to smoke a cigarette in your car in Bangor when children are inside.
Bangor City Councilors passed a new ordinance last night that will take effect in ten days.
And it’s not just cigarettes, pipes and cigars must also be put out when anyone under the age of 18 is present.
Bangor is the first municipality in Maine to pass such a measure. violators will face a fifty dollar fine if caught.
