Make Your Car Smokefree or Better Still Make Your Life Smokefree

A study carried out by researcher at the University of Aberdeen has found smoking in cars is putting passengers at dangerous levels of pollutants. Up to three times higher than the World Health Organisation indoor air quality standards.

Whether you have the air conditioning on or the windows wide open these pollutants stay in your vehicle.

Have a look at these links. Next time we’re on a journey in the car think about who is in the car before you light your cigarette.

  • Hi jarvo, I agree since I quit the car smells so much nicer , and the ashtray now stays empty. :)

  • Hi Jarvo, I agree as well, it's funny how when i smoked i didn't notice the smell in the house, now that i've stopped smoking, and the house is nearly decorated the change is amazing :)
