Don't Risk Your Child's Life by Leaving Them in the Car

Between 1998 and 2007, nearly 360 children died as a result of being left alone in a car. By leaving your children unattended in a vehicle for even a few minutes, you are needlessly risking their lives.

Never leave your child unattended in a vehicle
Make a habit of checking your vehicle before leaving it
Keep a stuffed animal or other reminder next to you in the car as a cue that your child is with you
If you see a child left alone in a car, contact the police or call 911

33% of children who die from being left in a hot car are less than one year old
Cracking your vehicle's windows has very little effect on its temperature
When left in a hot vehicle, a child's body temperature can increase three to five times as fast as an adult's
Children left unattended in a vehicle are at risk of being kidnapped
Children left alone in a car can push buttons, disengage the brakes, put the car in gear or even leave the vehicle and walk away
