The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration states that the majority of hot car deaths — 54% — happen because someone forgets a child in a car.
Help prevent deaths, “Park. Look. Lock.” Always check the back seat when getting out of a vehicle, always lock an unattended vehicle and never leave a child alone in a car, even for a minute.
Remember: Kids and hot cars can be a deadly combination. Don’t take the chance. Always look in the front and back of the vehicle before locking the door and walking away. Help spread the word on social media, #HeatstrokeKills #CheckforBaby.
Keep kids safe. Look before you lock. See how fast a car heats up: https://youtu.be/639NwftNHAk.
