Smoking in cars where children are present is to be banned in Wales, UK.
The new legislation will aim to protect children from the effects of second-hand smoke, which can be particularly harmful within confined spaces.
People caught smoking in cars carrying people aged under 18 could face fines and penalties on their driving licences.
Similar rules already exist in Cyprus, where smoking in cars with children under the age of 16 is banned.
MPs in England have recently drafted regulations to a similar effect, and have just launched an open consultation on them. Other countries in Europe, including Ireland, the Netherlands and Finland, are also considering a ban.
