Don't Leave Kids in Cars!



Did you know that cars parked in direct sunlight when outside temperatures are 80 to 100 degrees Fahrenheit can reach internal temperatures of 131 to172 degrees?

When the outside temperature is 83 (degrees), even with the window rolled down 2 inches, the temperature inside a car can reach 109 (degrees) in only 15 minutes!


Did you know on average, 37 children die in hot cars each year from heat-related deaths after being trapped inside motor vehicles?

Did you know that law enforcement can charge you with “Child Abuse or Neglect” under (G.S. 14-318.2) if there is evidence the child was subjected to physical injury or a substantial risk of physical injury as a result of being left unattended, for instance if they were left in a vehicle for an extended period of time during summer or winter-like conditions?

Bottomline… Don’t leave your children or your pets in avehicle.
