NEVER LEAVE A CHILD ALONE IN A CAR, EVEN ON MILD DAYS
As a reminder, you must be at least 16 years of age to enter the yard at Pull-A-Part. Please, never leave your children unattended in the parking lot.
Did you know that, even on a mild day, temperatures inside a vehicle can rise as much as 20 degrees in as little as ten minutes — even with the windows cracked?
Heat stroke isn’t a phenomenon unique to Texas. So far in 2016, heat stroke statistics have shown 16 children from Iowa to New York have succumbed to heat stroke on days as mild as 71 degrees — and in one case, on a 52-degree day in Georgia. Kids’ bodies trap and retain heat three to five times faster than adults, and can’t cool off as efficiently. A quick in-and-out stop at a convenience store can easily become dangerous for kids left alone — but still, one recent study found that 14 percent of parents have left their children alone in parked vehicles, even though many thought they understood the risks.
