Police Remind Local Residents Not To Leave A Child Unattended In A Vehicle, It’s The Law
By Space Coast Daily // July 24, 2017
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Titusville Police remind area residents that it is a criminal offense to leave a child unattended in a vehicle, in the state of Florida.
In just 10 minutes, the temperature of a parked vehicle can rise 20 degrees.
The crack of a window, even by inches, is no match to combat the rising heat.
This heat can be deadly, especially for children because their body temperatures rise five times faster than adults.
Children can easily be left behind in the car when parents are distracted, rushing, and multi-tasking or have a change in routine.
This is especially true during the summer months when kids are out of school and may have a different caretaker or driver.
