smoking ban in cars
It is now illegal  in England and Wales to smoke in a car when anyone under the age of 18. The new law is being implemented to protect children and young people from the dangers of second-hand smoke.
 
The law still applies even if the windows are open or if the smoker sits in the open doorway of the vehicle. The only exceptions are if  a 17 year old is driving a car on their own or if a convertible with the roof completely down is being driven.
 
The ban will not only have an influence on children’s health in general, but will have a significant effect on children’s oral health too. Passive smoking places children at a higher risk from tooth decay and problems with oral health development.
