Virginia Beach Police have cited a person for smoking inside a car with a minor present.

The ticket was apparently issued on Monday at around 8:30 a.m., according to a tweet from police.

In 2016, Virginia passed a law that made it illegal for adults to smoke in vehicles when a child under 8 years old is inside, regardless of whether the vehicle is in motion or stopped.

The penalty for this violation is a $100 fine.
