Under recent law changes, it is now illegal in England and Wales to smoke in a car carrying someone under the age of 18.The rule, which applies to drivers and passengers, is subject to enforcement with a £50 fine.
Under the Freedom of Information Act, I would like to find out: How many people have been reported for smoking in car carrying someone under the age of 18 since the ban was introduced on October 1?
Of these: How many faced no further action? How many people were given a warning? How many people were given a fine? What is the total amount of money that has been generated from fines relating to smoking in a car with an under 18 since October 1? Please break the answers to the above down by month. I would like the information up until the last date you hold.
No information is recorded. There have been no prosecutions to date.
