Summer Safety

Did you know?

  • Leaving your child unattended in a car is a crime punishable under Texas law (dfps.state.tx). It only takes 20 minutes for the inside of a car to reach 114° when it’s 85° outside and only 10 minutes when it’s 95°. (avma.org)
  • Texas law does not specify an age that you can safely leave your child at home alone. (dfps.state.tx)
  • It is illegal for a parent to allow a child under 14 years to ride a bike without a helmet – they can reduce the risk of head injury by 85% in a crash. (safekids.org)
