Locked cars. Don't leave life inside them.

Please, please, please.... do not leave any form of life inside your locked cars.

Today I have seen two saddening cases on the dailymail news feed. One being a man who left 3 dogs in his car on what he thought was a cold day.. with the windows turning his car into an oven..

Then this heart breaking story of a dad who killed his own daughter:

I personally think he should be charged with the most powerful offence going.. but that would mean his poor wife will lose two people she loves.. not that she's ever going to forgive him for the loss of her baby girl. Such a tragic case and a cruel future in the making that he has created.

Please.. do not leave any form of life in your car - even if you think you'll only be a minute or two. You may well get distracted, forget and find you've killed life. This advice has been going round for decades and people are still doing it - either through plain ignorance or deliberate stupidity. Just don't do it. It's as simple as that.

I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!

Much of it is simply down to lack of thought, whilst that might explain it in most cases, it does not excuse it.

Lack of thought... How the heck can you forget your own child is in the car?

Ditto, the guy needs to be held to account.

I'd certainly be marking his card and no two ways about it.

All views expressed are my own but you can express them too if you want to be right about everything like I am.

Any form of life? How do you get the single-celled organisms out like bacteria? Huh

 

But jokes aside, it's a pretty stupid act to leave a child in a locked car on a hot day, common sense would state that a greenhouse on wheels would get hot, but sadly, common sense is uncommon these days, but, he should face hefty punishment for such an act...

Likely because he was preoccupied thinking about something else.

Remember Cameron ? Did he / they both drove off and left the baby in a pub. (or something similar)

As stated in my earlier post there is no excuse for what he did, people have left dogs in cars which have died and they have ended up in court.

Having said that he will suffer as a result of his stupidity for the rest or his life.
