    Childern left in cars.

    Today I went to get pizza for lunch and noticed two very young childern left alone in a car. I stood outside the car for 5 mintues waiting for someone to come. Finally I went looking the adult, seeing how there was no other customer in the pizzera, I went next door to the sub shop and asked if anyone had left two children in a car and that one was crying. A lady said that "they are mine and that the oldest one can take care of the baby". The oldest child had to be younger than 4. I told the lady that it is illegal to leave children a car. I called the police but she left before they got there. the police told me that they couldn't do anything because they didn't witness it. Bravo to all the parents that know better.
    Oh, by the way it is very very cold outside today.

    That's a shame! You would think people would know better.

    Yet these are the same morons that meet me in the ER screaming and crying when their kids either "fry to death" in a car, or freeze to death. Not to mention, how many times on the NEWS do we see innocent babies/children hijacked by yet another scourge to society when parents leave them in the car to go pay for something?!?! I have not patience with people who lack the common sense to raise children. It really is not that hard....do unto them that which you would do for yourself!! Makes me wonder....

    some people are so ignorant. its scary to think people like that are allowed to raise children. the sad thing is those kids will grow up and be the same way because they werent shown any different

    You can always tell the police that you are willing to sign the complaint. That way they can't just write it off and say, "Well, we didn't see it." Too bad you didn't get a license plate number of the car.

    I did get the license plate number, but I didn't know I could file a complaint. I'll go down to the police station and file a complaint.

    That's one of the questions I'll ask someone if they report an erratic and/or drunk driver. If they are willing to sign a complaint, all the deputy/officer/trooper has to do is pull the individual over and write up the citation. Then the reporting party signs it as the complainant!

    The best thing to do in a situation like that, that won't result in you attacking the neglectful parent and winding up in jail, is to immediately call the police or fire dept and report it, or flag down an officer if you happen to see one.

    Not too sure of the law, but I think they should arrest those kind of neglectful parents for child neglect. If the weather is very hot or very cold they should be able to get them for child neglect, child abuse and wanton endangerment.

    I write the licence plate number down and call the police! I'm not sure if there is a law about animals too. It makes me feel so sad that so many people don't have the brains to think that anything could happen,I won't even let my 11 year old stay in the car by her self! There are to many wierdos out there!

    I am so proud of you for doing the right thing. There should be more citizens like you that help keep our children safe.

    In Calif, they made a new law that states you can't leave your canine in your car for more than three hours.

    I think it is illegal here to leave your pet in the car during the summer without a window cracked, you can get arrested to "animal abuse."

    I've seen it too, parent's leaving their kids in the car alone. It fusterates me, I know as a parent how hard to is to have to get all the kids (especially the younger ones) out at every stop...but it's a part of being a parent and a responsibly you sign up for as soon as your child enters the world. But, that's why they make WONDERFUL fast-food drive-thrus (what would we do without them!!!)
