Children should never be left alone in a vehicle, not even for a second!

-Even on a cloudy day, a vehicle is a dangerous place to leave a child
-Cracking the windows of the vehicle does little to help

Make sure you have a way to remember the child is with you

1. Leave your phone, purse, or even your left shoe in the back seat
*You will not get very far from the vehicle without these things*

2. Send a text to a family member or friend when everyone makes it inside the destination
3. Put a stuffed animal in the front seat with you as a visual reminder the child is in the seat
4. Always look before you lock
