The Rothenberg Law Firm LLP Teams Up with Local Philadelphia TV Stations to Promote Awareness of the Dangers of Leaving Children Unattended in a Hot Vehicle
Date:7/31/2014

Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) July 31, 2014

To further educate the public, The Rothenberg Law Firm LLP would like to provide the following safety information regarding leaving children in hot vehicles:

Leaving children alone in a car can have deadly consequences. Because a child’s body can heat up three to four times faster than those of adults, leaving children alone in a hot vehicle puts them at extreme risk for heatstroke, injury, and even death.

Statistics of Children Left Alone in a Car

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), during 2013 alone, 44 children in the U.S. died after being left unattended in a motor vehicle. Data from Safe Kids Worldwide, a nonprofit child safety organization, reveals that an average of 38 children die annually from heat-related deaths after having been left alone in a car. Furthermore, 14% of parents admitted to leaving their infants or toddlers unattended in a parked vehicle.

Heating Dynamics of Cars

These statistics are particularly alarming given the fact that temperatures inside a car can reach dangerously high levels in a matter of minutes, even with windows rolled down two inches and even under mild temperatures. This is due to the unique heating dynamics of motor vehicle windows, which when left in an abundance of sunlight, act as catalysts for rapid temperature increases. Moreover, as AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist, Alex Sosnowski, reports, "If a car is in the sun and the windows are up, temperatures can climb 40 degrees higher than the outside temperature." The darker the interior of a vehicle, the faster it heats up, with dashboards and steering wheel temperatures potentially hitting 200 degrees when sitting idle in the sun.
