Car passengers face toxic risk

Think you're safe from toxic fumes inside your car? Think again.

Research conducted by the Environmental Audit Committee has shown that passengers inside their cars are exposed to 15 times more toxic particles than cyclists and pedestrians.

The research showed that occupants inside cars inhaled a whopping 50 million particles for each breath they took, as opposed to 6 million as a pedestrian.

Worth thinking about when sat in traffic with the engine running.
