Smoking In Cars With Children Illegal
Using the excuse once again to protect children from secondhand smoke, starting on October 1, 2015 in England and Wales, it will be illegal to smoke in a car (or other vehicles) with anyone under 18 present. Both the driver and the smoker in the car could be fined as much as $80.
The law applies to any private vehicle that is enclosed wholly or partly by a roof. It still applies if people have the windows or sunroof open, have the air conditioning on, or if they sit in the open doorway of the vehicle.
In the U.S., states like Virginia, Arkansas, Louisiana, California and Maine have similar laws.
