Four reasons kids are being left in hot cars.
If one parent is used to transporting the child every day and that routine is changed to the other parent transporting the child, there is risk that the child could be forgotten.
If the parent or guardian has many errands to run, is in a hurry, or the child is simply quiet and the parent is using their phone — it can be easy to lose focus.
If the car keys are laying out and the parent or guardian is busy, there is a chance that a curious child may find their way into a car. There is a risk they could become locked in the vehicle, fall asleep, or simply want to play a game like hide-and-seek.
Despite how it sounds, this is generally not malicious. The parent or guardian needs to run inside a store, the house, or the office for a few minutes, and they think it’ll be safe if they crack the windows and only leave for a few minutes. However, no amount of time is safe for a child to be left unattended in a car, according to Safe Kids. “The first hot car related death this year happened on a day when the high was 70 degrees,” Parker says.
