NHTSA Press Statement on Hyperthermia Car Deaths

NHTSA has released a press statement on hyperthermia car deaths.


The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has published a press release concerning the unsettling number of child deaths caused by leaving children unattended in hot cars. The press release can be viewed here.


In support of this effort, Safe Ride News is offering their fact sheet that covers this issue free to CPSTs and other safety advocates.  They will send the PDF of "Parked Cars—Dangerous for Kids" (English and Spanish versions), which is easy to copy and hand out at local safety fairs and car seat checkups.

Please request the PDF from them via email to: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. Please include your name, address, phone number.
