David Strickland Hosts 'Listening Sessions' to Prevent Child Deaths in Hot Cars

NHTSA Administrator Strickland hosted a public meeting on hyperthermia (overheating of the body) in his home town of Atlanta on 15th August 2011.

The listening session dealt with strategies to prevent heat stroke deaths and injuries for the young children left unattended in vehicles.

Administrator Strickland says that "The summer of 2011 is shaping up to be one of the hottest on record and one of the worst years for children dying of heat stroke".

Children left alone in vehicles during hot weather are at a risk of a serious injury or death from hyperthermia.

Never leave your child unattended in a vehicle-consequences may be fatal
According to NHTSA research, hyperthermia is the leading cause of non-crash vehicle deaths for children under the age of fourteen.

Reports from the San Francisco State University Department of Geosciences show that due to hyperthermia
  • 49 children under the age of 14 years died in 2010,

  • 21 deaths so far in 2011
For discussing the best ways to raise awareness and to propose strategies for preventing these tragic events are being scheduled for North Carolina, Florida, California and Nevada.
