New evidence that car fumes cause lung cancer and heart failure…

… but even a small reduction in air pollution will save thousands of lives every year.

MEANWHILE, new research from CarPlus (which supports car clubs and car-share schemes) shows that:

  • car club members take fewer journeys by car (and use healthier travel options instead)
  • car club cars tend to be in emissions Band A (lowest), whilst the nation’s fleet is on average in Band D.

So, join a car club, rethink your car use and drive with a Green conscience!
