Tennessee 8th in Nation For Hot Car Seat Deaths
Peg Broadcasting News Tuesday June 27, 2017

Tennessee is 8th in the Nation for hot car seat deaths and that has Fred Sherrill, Law Enforcement Liaison for the Cumberland Region with the Tennessee Highway Safety Office, very concerned for this July 4th and the rest of the summer. Sherrill says that since 1998 at least 23 children have died in Tennessee after being left in hot vehicles. With all the distractions the Independence Day weekend can bring, Sherrill warns everyone to be especially mindful about not leaving their kids behind in the car. Even a few minutes are far too long. If it is 60 degrees outside, your vehicle can heat up to well above 110 degrees inside. And cracking a window or parking in the shade is just not enough to cool a vehicle sufficiently to prevent heat stroke or death. Sherrill says parents should place items like cell phones, laptops, and purses in the back seat so they will have to look in the rear of the vehicle before leaving it and, therefore, be more likely to see a child who is still strapped in a car seat. Parents can also put alarms on their phones to remind them to check the back seat. As Law Enforcement Liaison Fred Sherrill said, "This holiday weekend, check the back seat, don't text and drive, don't drink and drive, so we all arrive alive."
