Pop-A-Lock® is also a proud sponsor of KIDS AND CARS™, a nonprofit organization dedicated to educating the public about the dangers of leaving children unattended in and around cars.
Kids and CarsPop-A-Lock reminds you that you should never leave children unattended in vehicles - and heat is one of many reasons not to.
A sunshade from Kids And Cars can help in several different ways. To order yours, download and complete an order form from the “Education” page of the KidsAndCars website. Sunshades are available for $5.00 each. (Orders for 40 or more sunshades qualify for special pricing.)
Always keep your Kids And Cars sunshade in the back seat of your vehicle. When you arrive at your destination, open the back door to make sure no one has been left behind. (And take out your sunshade) After a couple of days this will become a habit. Place the sunshade in the windshield of your vehicle. This will help protect your vehicle from the harsh rays of the sun and preserve your dashboard from the elements.
Your vehicle has now become a ‘billboard’ for everyone in the parking lot to read. This can be a reminder to other parents who might have inadvertently left a child alone in the backseat and should remind parents that children should always be holding the hand of an adult while walking in parking lots.
Please be sure you are looking into vehicles as you go about your business this summer. If you see a child left alone in a vehicle, call 911 or your local emergency number immediately. Your actions could possibly save the life of an innocent child. Remember leaving children alone in vehicles is considered child abuse and neglect.
