Parents invited to pledge to make their cars smoke-free for kids

Mon 23rd January, 2012

The British Lung Foundation has launched an online pledge to encourage adults to commit to keeping their cars smoke-free when children are passengers. 

Any adult, whether they are a smoker, ex-smoker or non smoker can make the pledge by visiting the BLF website and entering their details.

Clare Cox, Director of Communications at the British Lung Foundation, said:

“Children have sent a strong message to their parents that they no longer want to endure a smoky car ride. Parents can listen to their children’s concerns and take this pledge to protect young lungs from the damage caused by cigarette fumes in the car.”
