Look Before You Lock - Keeping Kids Safe in Hot Cars


Yay for warmer temperatures, but here's something to always keep in mind: even a cool spring or fall day isn’t safe for leaving a child inside a car. 

In 2016, Texas led the nation in the number of hot car infant deaths. 

This alarming trend has gone surprisingly unabated. Since 1990, over 600 children have died from overheating in a car. Yet it took Congress until June 2017 to introduce the Hot Cars Act that would require all cars to have back seat child detection technology. 

Until the bill is passed, the best we can do is to educate ourselves so our children don’t become one of the statistics. Here are some things to keep in mind as the temperature climbs toward the sweltering heat of summer.
