Highway safety office warns parents, caretakers about kids in hot cars

This summer’s temperatures have been extremely warm, creating the perfect conditions for a potentially devastating outcome. The dangers for children being seriously injured or even dying from being left alone inside a hot car rise substantially with summer’s heat. The Governor’s Office of Highway Safety has joined the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration for National Heatstroke Prevention Day in an effort to reduce these tragic deaths by reminding parents and caregivers about the dangers of heatstroke in young children.
