PORT HOPE — A Port Hope man is the second person in Ontario charged under a new law that prohibits smoking in vehicles carrying children. And while the 20-year-old man was waiting to be issued his ticket after being pulled over yesterday, his 15-year-old female passenger got out of the vehicle and lit up a cigarette.
Port Hope Police Const. Tammie Hartford said she could only watch in frustration as the 15-year-old smoked. “She was the reason why I pulled the vehicle over,” she said. “She was under the age (of 16).”
