Call to ban smoking in cars

3rd March 2011

Nurses have been urged to join a campaign warning about the serious health risks to children caused by adults smoking in cars.

Respiratory nurses and other health professionals are among 15,000 people to sign a petition as part of a British Lung Foundation (BLF) push to stop smoking in cars. A petition has been presented at 10 Downing Street to coincide with the publication of new research by the BLF that shows more than half of five to eight-year-olds have been exposed to cigarette smoke in a car.
