Lawmakers from across the Commonwealth of Virginia introduced, killed and passed hundreds of pieces of legislation during the 2017 General Assembly Session.
It is unlawful for an individual to smoke in a motor vehicle, whether in motion or parked, when a minor under the age of eight is visible in the motor vehicle. This is a second offense, however, this violation of this section is punishable by a civil penalty of $100.
