Atlanta Car Dealer: Kids And Hot Cars Don’t Mix

I write about this topic once a year, usually at the beginning of summer I don’t think that this topic is talked about enough actually and should probably get in the habit of writing another one in 6 months. Being an Atlanta Car Dealer, the Southtowne General Motors Superstore, I, for obvious reasons, have a connection to the automotive world that most people do not have. My days and nights are consumed with cars, new technology, the automotive industry and wondering if I turned off the lights at the dealership after I leave. So it pains me when I read stories about forgetful, or neglectful parents leaving their children in hot cars. Look, I understand that sometimes things happen, but this is one of those things that just can’t, not even for a minute.

Just take a look at this video to see why it’s dangerous and get a tip on how to prevent you from forgetting your child:

The video was an eye opener, showing  that babies heat up 3 to 5 times faster than adults, and how large a gap there  is between the outside and the inside temperature of a vehicle.  So please, the next time you want to run in for a quick coffee purchase and leave your baby in the back seat, don’t do it.  It might be a death trap.  To learn more, check out kidsandcars.org for other kids & cars related safety tips.

Also, I know how tricky those car seats are, so if you’re by Southtowne and would like us to demonstrate how to properly install the car seat, we’d be more than happy to help.  A secure car seat can help prevent injury among children involved in car accidents.
