Hello Folks, We all know about the dangers of air pollution and the effect it has on our health. I'm on the front line as a truck driver but we do our best to minimise emissions with filters on the exhausts. I was recently diagnosed with COPD (serves me right ) but I've never smoked. During my investigation as to how I caught this I've discovered my employer has opted not to fit cabin air filters to my truck. The air I breathe comes straight from the exhaust of the vehicle in front. I've refused to drive the truck until a filter is fitted and my employer has suspended me.
So I advise anyone who drives (especially Mercedes Sprinters without air con) to google "Cabin/ Pollen air filters" Most of you will have them fitted. Make sure they are maintained and replaced regularly. A good filter will stop 95% of pollutants coming into your car/truck.
