England and Wales Ban Smoking In Cars With Children
It's now illegal to smoke in a car with a child as a passenger in England in Wales. But will it be enforced?By Katie Link | October 1, 2015
You can't do it on trains, in pubs or at public parks. And now, in England and Wales, you can't do it in a car with a child. We're talking about smoking.
A new law bans drivers and passengers in England and Wales from smoking while in the car with a minor. Windows down and sunroof open? Still illegal. The penalty you face: a £50 fine. (That's about $75.)
But how in the world will law enforcement actually enforce this? Turns out they don't really plan to.
