On Sunday 28 November any car carrying people under the age of 18 must be smokefree.
Smokefree cars are yet another step in the move to achieve the Smokefree 2025 goal. New Zealand continues to have some of the most advanced smokefree policies in the world. Other recent steps taken have included plain packaging of cigarettes, a retail display ban, and progressive vaping legislation that supports vaping use as a quit smoking tool. The smokefree cars ban will greatly diminish the health hazard of second-hand smoke while young people are in cars.
