In the UK, there are about 10,000 million adult smokers and most of them also smoke while they're driving, although children come along with them.
I reckon it's a great idea this new law of England and Wales of not smoking in cars with children. In my opinion there should be a similar law in Spain.
Drivers and passengers that break the law could face a fine of £50.
Because of the parents who smoke in cars, children become passive smokers, and they might have asthma, meningitis, etc.
I think it's also good that the law says that it's banned to smoke even if windows are open, because smoke can stay in the air for up to two and a half hours even windows are open.
But, I don't entirely agree with the law when it says "Whenever an under -18 is in the car, smokers will still be liable even if windows are down or sunroof open". I reckon if the teenager that goes in the car also smokes, the driver shouldn't be fined.
But this isn't the only problem, lots of people die each year because of smoking and doing other activities that can distract you while you're driving. In addiction, smoking can distract drivers.
Do you really want this?
