New range of safety signs to support laws against smoking in cars with children.
We doubt even the most hardened smokers could argue that the new laws banning smoking in cars containing children aren’t long overdue. Therefore our new range of safety signs to support laws against smoking in cars with children help inform and advise.
Considering the ban on smoking in enclosed spaces came into force in 2006 & 2007 around the UK, it seems ludicrous that it has taken this long to introduce a law protecting children in such an enclosed space as a car.
This new no smoking law will came into force on 1 October 2015.
Smoke fumes in cars were reported to be 11 times more concentrated than in the open and we personally don’t think the law has gone far enough with an on the spot fine of just £50 being levied against anyone flouting the law. However, this can go up to £800 if it goes to court and even £10,000 for a driver who fails to prevent someone else smoking in a car containing children.
