Video of "Smoking in a Car" Demonstration

To highlight the 2008 law in California that prohibits smoking in a car with a minor present, a press conference was held on January 3, 2008 in Hollywood, CA. The conference was held by the State of California's Department of Health, Tobacco Control Section. Several state officials spoke at the conference. During this press conference, Dr. Neil Klepeis performed a demonstration of the levels of smoke that can occur inside an automobile when a smoker lights up. The demonstration was based on the methods and results of the 2007 paper by Ott et al.

The following video contains material that was presented at the press conference.
