New rules will ban smoking in cars with children on board from 1 October 2015. The new British law is designed to protect minors from inhaling tobacco smoke - and will apply to drivers and passengers in any 'enclosed vehicle'.

That means the ban only applies to closed vehicles, so you can smoke away to your heart's (dis)content in a convertible. Just remember that sunroofs don't count. Anyone breaking the fine is liable to a £50 fine.

Cant disagree with the sentiment behind this, but it sounds a very difficult law to Police.

It will be - chief officers have indicated that they will be taking a "non-confrontational" approach to applying the new law.

As confirmed by the Department for Health, police won't begin hunting for those breaking the law, but will help underline the importance of the legislation and a desired "cultural change".
