Smoking in vehicles when minors are present

Wednesday, April 11, 2018

Second hand smoke is harmful for everyone, but the effects can have a greater effect on developing bodies. It is for this reason that the Alberta Tobacco and Smoking Reduction Act prohibits smoking in a vehicle where a minor is present. This sections can apply to parents driving with their children, or even a group of friends of varying ages travelling together including minors smoking with other minors.
Please think twice before lighting up with minors present, the fine for a violation is 287 dollars but the negative health effects are far greater.
