Move to ban smoking in cars

Under tough new proposals in NSW, smoking will be banned in cars carrying children and shops will no longer be allowed to display Cigarettes. The Iemma Government plans to overhaul laws to protect children from exposure to Cigarettes, including the immediate removal of tobacco retailers' licences if they are caught selling Cigarettes to minors. NSW Assistant Health Minister Verity Firth said children needed to be protected from a life of tobacco addiction. She said 80 per cent of smokers took up the habit in their teens. "By about age 20, 80 per cent of smokers regret that they ever started, having underestimated the addictive nature of nicotine,"she said. "Every suburban shopping centre has huge displays of cigarette packets for sale alongside lollies, chips and other children's treats. "We need to look at ways to remove the visual lure of Cigarettes to children at their local shops. "This is supported by eight out of 10 community members surveyed by the Cancer Institute NSW as part of a three-year survey on attitudes to smoking." Ms Firth said the reform package would be released as a discussion paper next month for community and business consultation. If it is supported, NSW will follow Tasmania's lead in banning cigarette displays in shops. South Australia has banned people lighting up in cars that are carrying children aged under 16. Ms Firth said one in five cancer deaths was caused by smoking. "We need to help this generation of young people beat this scourge - Reducing exposure to the marketing of Cigarettes and the temptation of a habit that will lead to an addiction that can cut years off their lives," Ms Firth said.
