Communities make scents of smokefree cars

People are rolling up on forecourts around the country to freshen their cars before a smokefree law change arrives in the next few months.   

This month free car air fresheners with the message ‘We Drive Smokefree for Tamariki’ are available at 75 Challenge Fuel stations nationwide as part of a partnership with Te Hiringa Hauora | Health Promotion Agency. The idea is to prompt smokers to reflect on when and where they smoke, given the damage second-hand smoke has on children, especially in cars.
