Hot Cars Kill Kids
Every 10 days, vehicular heatstroke kills a child in the United States. Every 10 days, a parent loses a child to a preventable death. Since 1998, there have been 671 deaths, 10 of which happened this year. It’s time to stop vehicular heatstroke from killing our children. The time to take action is now!
