Chicago Clamps Down On Kids Using Tanning Beds

Posted by wlpo on June 7, 2012

CHICAGO (AP) – Teens in Chicago will soon be banned from tanning beds in salons.

The Chicago City Council voted Wednesday to prohibit tanning parlors from serving anyone under age 18. The ordinance from Alderman Debra Silverstein says the ban is “regardless of whether the person has the permission of a parent or guardian.” The ban doesn’t cover tanning beds in private homes. Fines will range
from $100 to $250 per offense.

Tanning beds have received a lot of attention in recent weeks after a deeply tanned New Jersey woman was accused of allowing her 5-year-old daughter to use a tanning bed.
