More children died from being left in hot cars in 2018 than ever before!
Seven children across the country have already died this year because they were left in a hot car, including a 9-month-old in Wilkes County, North Carolina, according to the North Carolina Department of Insurance.
The North Carolina Department of Insurance and Governor’s Highway Safety Program have partnered to warn parents about the dangers of leaving children and pets in hot vehicles.
With the temperatures rising into the high 80s and low 90s, and expected to increase throughout the summer, a statewide summer safety program called, “Baby, It’s Hot Outside” was launched.
