Understand the new rules of Smoking in cars

Author: Dipti Parmar     Date: 21-08-2015

If you are not aware about the new rules involving smoking in cars, then it's worth taking note that from the 1st of October, it will be illegal to smoke in any vehicle with anyone under 18 present.

The new rule affects from 1st October where drivers and smokers could both could get a £50 penalty if they are found smoking in cars with people who are under 18. The rule will apply to every driver in England and Wales; however Scotland is also considering introducing the ban. 
 
Similar bans on smoking in cars with children already exist in some US states including California and some parts of Canada and Australia.
 
The rule is coming in to protect children and young people from dangers of second-hand smoke. Cigarettes contains thousands of chemicals which may put people at serious risk conditions including cancer, meningitis, bronchitis and pneumonia. It can also make asthma worse.
 
Chief Executive of the British Heart Foundation, Dr Penny Woods commented on a tremendous victory with the new law and showed the same commitment to introduce standardised packaging for all tobacco products, in order to protect 200,000 children taking up smoking every year in this country.
