Stickers designed by Brighton children to promote a ban on smoking in cars when they are present are being printed by the council to appear on bumpers around town.
They were created for a contest run by the city council, fire service and NHS and will be distributed in their thousands to pupils who took part.
Does this get classed as art?
Special assemblies were held in each school about the new law and the fire service visited each school with a fire engine.
Is that a regular thing, do you suppose? An assembly for new legislation?
They must be never out of the assembly hall!
Many of the children’s designs featured drawings of cars with messages about the new law, at least one with images of a green-faced child saying ‘Stop!’ while the driver chugs on a cigarette.
Another features pictures of children snuggled up in bed or in a cot with the question, ‘Why should we choke on your smoke?’.
Fine. Walk to school in future!
A spokesman for Brighton and Hove City Council’s public health team said: “The ban on smoking in cars with children present means ‘one less space to smoke, one more reason to give up smoking. ”
Dear god, but I loathe these people.
