Smoking in Vehicles legislation
Smokers in Devon are being given one more reason to quit as a law has come into force which make it illegal for anyone to smoke in vehicles with children present.
The law is designed to help protect children from the dangers of secondhand smoke. Under the ban both the driver and the smoker can be fined £50 if anyone smokes in a vehicle with a person who is under 18.
