South Western Sydney Local Health District Public Health Unit director Dr Stephen Conaty said since December 1 last year, it has been against the law to use an e-cigarette in a car while a child under the age of 16 is present.

Drivers caught breaking the law will be fined $250 by NSW Police who will have the power to issue on the spot fines.

Dr Conaty said the ban was part of several restrictions introduced in relation to the sale of e-cigarettes and accessories.

“These include a ban on the display and advertising of e-cigarettes and accessories and a ban on the sale of these products to minors, which commenced earlier last year,” Dr Conaty said.

A public education campaign will be undertaken to increase awareness in the community about the law banning the use of e-cigarettes in a car with children present, including radio traffic spots and social media posts.

NSW Health has also written to retailers and key industry organisations to raise awareness about the new bans regarding the display and advertising of e-cigarettes and accessories.
