2406 Leaving children unattended

Don't. Not for a minute. Even $5 million isn't worth it.

I really hope Chrysler wins on appeal. The child is left in the van, keys in the ignition so the guy washing the car could hear the radio, parked on a hill, emergency brake not set, mother not close by, and the child does what any kid would do who wants to "play driving" and puts it in gear. A device, not required in models of that year, might have been able to keep the van from rolling, but how do you protect children from adults who don't think?

Isn't it terrible? Last year there were 3 cars stolen with kids in them. You would think people would be more precocious after the first one happened, and the darn thing was all over the local news.
Yet the still leave the children unattended with the car running. How dumb is that? This all happened in a matter of maybe 2 months.

Thanks for stopping by my site and for your kind words.


Poor kid. Irresponsible parents I may say.
