The first phase of banning smoking in cars is to come into force today (1 October 2015). If anyone lights up in a car with another passenger in the car who is under 18 the driver and smoker could face a fine of £50 if caught by the police.
The police are said to be taking a non-confrontational approach in enforcing it. If you have a convertible and the roof is down we understand this does not break the law. No doubt we will see in the media how the enforcement pans out.
