Viewpoint: We must remember kids in cars

Every year, we report stories of children being left in hot cars and buses.

And every year, we hope that we won't have to report such stories.

We've reported on parents who normally don't drop their kids off to daycare and  forget.

We've reported on school bus drivers and/or bus monitors who don't follow procedure and check to make sure ALL students are off the bus at the conclusion of their routes.

We've even reported on parents who leave children in hot cars as they "run" into a store for just a moment.  The result is tragic.

Especially with our recent triple-digit temperatures, we impress upon all who have children in their care to do whatever it takes to ensure the children are out of the cars and buses when you leave the vehicle.

This precious cargo cannot be replaced!
