From the first of October it will be illegal in the UK to smoke in your car with any u18 passengers on board! This means that it has never been more clear that smoking in cars is not good for you or your passengers health!
The GOV.UK website states that:
‘The new rules will come into force on 1 October 2015 and people failing to comply could face a £50 fixed penalty notice.’ But many are concerned about how easy it will be to stop and punish these offenders.
The site goes on to quote Public Health Minister Jane Ellison who states:
“Three million children are exposed to secondhand smoke in cars, putting their health at risk. We know that many of them feel embarrassed or frightened to ask adults to stop smoking which is why the regulations are an important step in protecting children from the harms of secondhand smoke.
“The regulations will become part of the existing smokefree laws and would make it an offence to smoke or to fail to prevent smoking in a private vehicle with someone under the age of 18 present. The regulations do not apply to a driver on their own in a car.”
This emphasises the health warnings.
But what can you do to remind people of the law?
No Smoking Car Stickers
We can provide you with double sided no smoking vehicle sign stickers that will remind you and the other passengers in the car not to smoke. This could be the perfect solution for you for that gentle reminder that at just £1.35 is a small price to pay to stop those £50 fines that could come in quite quick.
Other no smoking signs
We also produce a large number of other no smoking prohibition signs which could other solutions to other areas of your business or life where smoking is not allowed!
