Auto safety is a very important matter for us and because of that, we decided to report on a serious issue associated with auto and children safety.

According to the news, children left unattended in vehicles have been the victims of fatal heatstrokes in the recent past. In a six day period in August of 2012, eight children have reportedly died in this manner. A safety advocacy group that tracks these incidents stated that, because many parents still leave their kids unattended in their vehicles, this may not be the end of this trend.
