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?
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.
I am writing to inform you that we have searched our records and the information you requested is not held by West Midlands Police.
