Hot weather dangerous for people, pets left inside cars
It’s a good time to remind you of the dangers associated with how quickly temperatures can rise inside cars.
You should never leave children, vulnerable adults or pets alone in a vehicle.
Temperatures can go up quickly, even with the windows left partially open.
Every year, children die after being left alone in hot cars.
A child’s body temperature rises three to five times faster than an adult’s.
In just 10 minutes, the temperature inside a vehicle can rise by 20 degrees, enough to kill a child left alone inside.
