Child safety warning issued by CHP

-A +A
As the summer heat continues, the California Highway Patrol has a warning for the motoring public: never leave a child unattended in a vehicle. Vehicles can heat up quickly, even with a window rolled down; temperatures inside a vehicle can reach deadly levels within minutes; and heat stroke, a form of hypothermia, could result in the permanent injury or death of a child. According to the CHP, a violation of the Unattended Child in a Motor Vehicle Act, or Katilyn’s Law, will result in a fine.
