When you get a chance.... I'd like you to take a moment and read over this:
Compilation of State, County, and Local Anti-Idling
This report is a bit dated, but it's gotten worse, if anything. It sure had in the 4 years following it's publication to the time I left the road.
Now...Kids being left in cars should have the people who do it, left in prison. Period. No exception except for the amount of time they get left there
on circumstances to what actually happened.
The link above is how this is forced, by law, on anyone who drives a truck ...and many have both children and pets with them. It doesn't matter if
you're in Maricopa County Arizona, or Oneida, New York or Los Angeles California. If the local ordinance says no idling, they mean YOU in the truck,
too. Living ..in that truck. No "home" to leave to and get our of the hot, shut off vehicle ...that gets JUST as hot, JUST as fast as any car does.
More so, depending on colors and locations, of course.
That poor little guy stands to show what air temp does inside a vehicle vs. outside temp even on a "cool day". Go figure how the absolute obsession
with air quality leads to the forced mandate, by law, to shut off the home a few million drivers w/ some families LIVE IN....just as sure as these
people left their kids in a car and walked away.
Just my two cents to toss in the jelly Jar....and a situation very few outside the trucking profession even know exists, let alone give thought to.
