The fourteen states that have laws that prohibit leaving children unattended in an automobile include California, Connecticut, Florida, Illinois, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland…, Missouri, Nebraska, Nevada, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Texas, and Washington. Most states have clauses in those laws specializing that the child must be in obvious danger or (in the case of Washington) depend on what type of establishment you are going into. Penalties for leaving children alone range from noncriminal traffic infractions to second-degree manslaughter charges if the child dies as a result from being left alone in the car. Additionally, there is a wide age range of children that pertain to these laws. Please note that even if a state does not have a specific law prohibiting adults from leaving children unattended, state and local prosecutors have the discretion to criminally charge adults under existing child endangerment laws if there is a significant threat to the child. The reasoning behind most of these laws is that, children, who have smaller bodies, react faster to adverse conditions. Therefore, if a car is sweltering and they are unable to open the doors, then they are too young to save themselves. Have your kid open the car door by themselves and you can leave them in the car while you shop.

There is no age on that law. IF the child is unable to get out of the car on his or her own OR is not able to determine that staying in the hot car is a hazard because the…y dont have the proper mental capacity, then it is illegal.
