Hot Cars Can Be Death Traps for Kids and Pets

April 24, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 204

Each year, distracted and overwrought parents leave their unattended kids in cars, subjecting them to danger of several types. On days where the temperatures are warm, the danger of being left in a locked car with the windows up can be extreme, high temperatures inside the car can cause injury or even death in a shorter time than most parents realize. The topic of car safety for children is one that is very much in the public focus due to several cases where children were left in their car seats, quietly asleep as parents inadvertently forgot about them.

Something as simple as just a visual reminder on the window of the car could have prevented this from happening. A colorful and eye catching graphic that helps the distracted and hurried parent remember to always, one hundred percent of the time, check their back seat and make sure that there is nothing they are overlooking.

These same reminders that work for the sleeping and quiet child in the car can be used to enhance the safety of dogs in cars. The leaving of a dog in the car for any length of time on a warm day or even a sunny winter day, can be dangerous for the dog. It is wise to be always conscious of the fact that we are busy and lost in our own thoughts and that checking our cars inside completely before walking away from them every time can be a life saving habit, reinforced by the reminders we have on our windows.

The goal of better car safety for kids is prompted by the tragic and near tragic experiences of other parents who have seen how just a few moments of being extra conscientious can make a huge difference. It is always better to be safe than sorry and this simple habit can give peace of mind to your entire day and prevent a terrible mistake from impacting your life forever.

Be aware and be consistent, form the habit of making sure your car interior is empty and safe before you lock the car and walk away. There is nothing wrong with double checking your back seat for a sleeping child or pet.

That simple glance behind you could end up saving a life and keeping yours on track. The guilt that some parents feel when they lose a child or pet is horrible. Be safe, and aware to avoid this happening to you.

All to often car safety for children and leaving dogs in cars on hot summer days is over-looked. Emma's Inspirations helps remind parents of these dangers with simple window cling stickers that can be placed on any car... And Save a Life! Find out more at
