New Laws About Leaving Children Unattended in Cars

By Jenny Albano

ADVERTISEMENTS

As of now twelve states have laws that specifically prohibit parents or guardians from leaving children alone in cars. Some of the states make it a traffic violation that includes a ticket or fine and other states make the offense a misdemeanor with a possible prison sentence. All states have laws that allow authorities to charge parents with child neglect and endangerment if a child dies because he/she was left unattended in a car.

In Florida, the child-in-car law was just recently amended to make it a second-degree misdemeanor to leave a child under the age of 6 alone in a vehicle for more than fifteen minutes or at all if the car is still running. The new rules went into effect on July 1, 2007 and if a parent or guardian is prosecuted they could face up to 60 days in jail and a fine of $500.
