Hot Car Endangerment Is Criminal

Law enforcement is reminding you it is a crime to leave children and pets in hot cars alongwith being dangerous.“It only takes just minutes for a car to go from a comfortable 70 degrees to well over 120 degrees. Especially when the temperature outside is over 70 degrees Fahrenheit,” said Hazard Police Department Deputy Chief, James East.This can cause serious harm to anyone, but especially young children, elderly dependents and animals.“Unfortunately, every summer we get calls of either a child left in a car or an animal left in a car. When we get them, we respond accordingly,” said East.
