Temperatures are rising in Arizona, and it is important to remember that hot cars can be deadly for children and pets. According to a study by Arizona State University, your car can reach 138 degrees in an hour when parked in the sun on a 100-degree day.
A few minutes is all it takes for a child/pet to die of heat stroke. In over half of hot-car death cases, parents simply forgot their child or pet was in the back seat. One quick look in your back seat before you lock your vehicle will save a life.
