Smoking cigarettes is known to cause a slew of negative health complications, but inhaling second-hand some can come with consequences as well. In an effort to reduce the effect it has on children, a new law has passed in Arkansas to prevent smokers from using cigarettes in a car with kids, according to ABC affiliate KAIT-8.
The law specifically states that individuals may not operate a motor vehicle and smoke with a child under the age of 14 in the car. The goal is to not only reduce second-hand smoke exposure among children, but to encourage others to quit.
"I think people pretty much know not to smoke around kids that small. You know it's just common sense," Sergeant Mark Walker with the Paragould Police Department told the news source.
Individuals who are interested in keeping children away from cigarette smoke and wish to breathe easier may want to consider purchasing the IQ Air GC MultiGas Indoor Air Purifier. This system contains a HyperHEPA filter that can remove ultrafine particles from up to 900 square feet of space.
The IQ Air GC MultiGas Indoor Air Purifier is also effective in eliminating chemicals, such as isoprene, ethanol and hydrogen chloride, from the atmosphere.
