Smoking Mom – PSA
This PSA was a California State finalist in 2008 for their ant-smoking campaign. I wanted to emphasize something that I always have seen that really disturbed me. Smoking cigarettes in the car with children in it, usually with the windows rolled up. Even though smoking is bad for you, it’s a really bad habit to break and some people just really enjoy it. It’s your life, you are going to do what you want to do as an adult. But I think that smoking in the car with children is not fair to the children involved. Second hand smoke has been proven to cause health issues. I bet it sucks to be a kid who had to deal with a smoking parent like this. I didn’t know it at the time, but when I submitted this commercial California had just passed a Smoke-Free Car law that January that fined anyone who was smoking in a car with minors who were under that age of 18. The fine is $100. You can see the law here. Smoke-Free Car Law LOL.
OMG. I didn’t know this just until now on 9/7/2014, while I was looking up some information for this post, portions of our video were used in this video How Dangerous is Smoking in Cars? that appears on Tobacco Free CA’s Vimeo Channel. You can see the portions of the video after the 5 minute mark. Yay!!!Synchronicity in action. Wow!!! I found the link on No-Smoke.org.
On a side note I’m back dating my posts to reflect when videos were made and or launched in order of appearance.
