This bylaw is included in the database because children up to the age of 18 are protected from SHS in private vehicles. This bylaw is now superseded by Bill 33, the Tobacco and Smoking Reduction Act (amends the Tobacco Reduction Act) as they both it and the bylaw use age 18. The Smoke-Free Ontario Act, the yardstick to which all included bylaws are compared, only protects children in cars aged under 16.
