b In 2007 South Australia became the first Australian State or Territory to enact a ban on smoking in vehicles when children under 16 years are present. Every other jurisdiction followed suit over the next seven years. As of December 1, 2014, smoking in cars carrying children under 16 (17 in WA, 18 in Vic & Tas) years of age is banned in every jurisdiction in Australia.
