Dangers of leaving children unattended

Infants or young children should never be left unattended in a motor vehicle.

A variety of hazards can arise, even if you are only away for a short while.

These include:

  • an outbreak of fire,
  • breathing problems on warm days,
  • accidental trapping of children in electronically operated windows, and
  • leaving your car keys in your car when you are not in it.
