Do you like driving with one arm out the window, or think that the windshield and door glass protect you from UV-rays? Not necessarily so. According to researcher Dr. Brian Boxer Wachler of the Boxer Wachler Vision Institute, “some cars were as low as 50 percent blockage”, a new study shows. Reuters Health further reports that: “Don’t assume because you are in an automobile and the window is closed that you’re protected from UV light”.
At the same time, Melanoma UK is launching a new campaign to “campaign to warn motorists about the dangers of skin damage while driving in the sunshine”, the BBC reports.
