As summer continues to sizzle in Texas, children will be spending more time outdoors and the danger of children being left alone in and around cars increases, warns the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety.

When children get left alone in cars, the first thought is the danger of children dying in hot cars due to heat stroke. In addition to heat risks, there are other safety concerns with unsupervised children around cars, including backovers, the risk of children releasing the gear shift or engaging electric windows, and even becoming trapped inside vehicles or trunks.
