Smoking in your car

From 1 October 2015 it will be illegal to smoke in a car (or other vehicles) with anyone under 18 present. Public Health Minister Jane Ellison said:
“Three million children are exposed to secondhand smoke in cars, putting their health at risk.... the regulations are an important step in protecting children from the harms of secondhand smoke”.
£50 Fine But No Points
Drivers and adult passengers will now be liable to a £50 fine if they either smoke or fail to prevent someone from smoking with a child in the car.
