To prohibit the smoking of tobacco products or vaping in motor vehicles when a child aged 14 years or under is present in the vehicle; and in connection therewith would have as its purpose or effect the requirement of a new or increased expenditure of local funds within the meaning of Amendment 621 of the Constitution of Alabama of 1901, now appearing as Section 111.05 of the Official Recompilation of the Constitution of Alabama of 1901, as amended.
(a) It is unlawful for a person to smoke a tobacco product or to vape in a motor vehicle, whether in motion or at rest, in which a child aged 14 years or under is present in the vehicle. (b) For purposes of this section, smoke has the same meaning as smoking in Section 22-15A-3, Code of Alabama 1975, and tobacco product has the same meaning as in Section 28-11-2, Code of Alabama 1975. (c) For purposes of this section, vape or vaping has the same meaning as electronic nicotine delivery system that carries a liquid nicotine container pursuant to Section 28-11-2. (c) (d) A violation of this section is punishable by a fine not exceeding one hundred dollars ($100) for each violation. (d) (e) A violation of this section shall be a secondary violation after a lawful stop of the vehicle based on probable cause of another violation of law and the issuance of a citation or warrant of arrest for the violation.
Although this bill would have as its purpose or effect the requirement of a new or increased expenditure of local funds, the bill is excluded from further requirements and application under Amendment 621, now appearing as Section 111.05 of the Official Recompilation of the Constitution of Alabama of 1901, as amended, because the bill defines a new crime or amends the definition of an existing crime.
This act shall become effective on the first day of the third month following its passage and approval by the Governor, or its otherwise becoming law.
