SALT LAKE CITY (ABC 4 News) - Governor Gary Herbert signed House Bill 13 into law March 28 banning adults from smoking in cars with kids 15-years-old and younger.

The bill becomes law May 14. The maximum find is $45, but police won't hand out tickets during the first year of enforcement.

Below is reaction from people who talked with ABC 4:

"I think that they should ban smoking everywhere on the earth. Including the car. My dad died of lung cancer and I hate smoking," said Larry Haddy from Bountiful.

"Do you think it steps on personal freedoms?" asked ABC 4's Noah Bond. "I think it steps on personal freedoms, but I think there's a lot of people who smoke who don't consider the health of their kids," replied Keith Dashnaw from Denver.

"I think that children have the right to be brought up with a healthy life style and not be exposed to secondhand smoke," said James Neider from South Jordan.
