Smoking with children in cars now illegal.

It is not a coincidence that weedless wednesday (Jan. 21, 2009) is the first day when Ontario joins Nova Scotia in banning lighting up in your vehicle when children are present.

Drivers can face fines of up to $250 dollars. Nova Scotia already banned smoking in cars with kids last year. BC, New Brunswick and PEI are planning to join this plan as well.



Here are few FAQ's:

Q: What is being considered as children in vehicles?
A: Children under age of 16

Q: What fine can you face when caught smoking in your car?
A: Up to $250

Q: Does this law affect pets, elderly or handicapped?
A: No, this law applies to children only.

Q: Can I still smoke inside my house?
A: Yes you can!

  Do people actually have to be caught in the act before they can be fined?
