1. When you smoke in a stationery car that has the windows closed you produce 23 times more smoke than in a bar. You might say that you never smoke with the windows closed. Even so, a car still remains the worst type of space where you can get your lungs filled with second hand smoke.

2. Kids suffer more from this. According to a study conducted by British researchers kids are more affected by this bad habit because they have faster breathing rates, they don’t have a completely developed immune system and they cannot remove themselves from the source. The UK promotes banning smoking form cars where there are kids and a law related to this will come into force in October 2015.

3. The car loses value – a car that belonged to a smoker will sell for less money than one in which people didn’t smoke. The cigarette smoke will linger in the ventilation system and in the upholstery requiring some changes down the road (they might get burnt or change color due to the smoke). This will knock down a few bucks when you plan to sell it, so think about it seriously.

4. Air conditioning doesn’t help – if you insist on smoking, keep the window open and blow the smoke outside the car. But remember that when you close the window and start the air conditioning the concentration of carcinogenic particles rises from 1394 to 3808 millionths of a gram per cubic meter. Only one hour per day of smoke exposure will affect the pulmonary system of the persons inside.
