British Medical Association Calls For Ban On Smoking In Cars04:40


The British Medical Association is calling for a total ban on smoking in cars, releasing new research that shows that the level of toxins in cars where people are smoking is 23 times higher than levels in a smoky bar.

Britain is already considering a ban on smoking in cars when kids are present, but the BMA says that should be extended.
