Kids in Hot Cars: Criminal Charges or Better Education?

by John McKiggan

Today I was interviewed as Chair of Kids and Cars Canada. The issue: The dangers of leaving children in hot cars and what can be done to prevent it. Should the conduct be criminalized or will better public education help?

You can listen to the interview and the calers comments by going to 570 News website and clicking on the link to the audio clip of the interview.

Leaving Kids in Hot Cars

The interview runs from 1:43 to 10:50 and the call in discussion runs until 20:55.

So what do you think? If a parent leaves their child in a hot car should they face criminal charges? Should car manufacturers be installing monitor – warning lights to alert drivers that there is someone in the back seat? Is public education the answer?

Please let me know what you think by posting a comment.
