Today kicks off child safety week, and so far 2010 is on track to be the deadliest year for children locked in vehicles. As of July, 23 children around the country have died as a result of being locked or trapped in hot cars. Eleven were accidentally left in a vehicle, while a dozen were playing in the cars and became trapped. While the temperatures are beginning to cool, there are other dangers parents and caregivers should always keep in mind. The most important safety tip: always make sure your child is properly restrained while in a vehicle. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, an average of 4 children under the age of 14 are killed every day in motor vehicle crashes, in the U.S.
