Cars are not a place for children to play and getting locked in a vehicle’s trunk can not only be very scary for a child but could be fatal.  Although cars sold in the U.S. starting in 2001 have an emergency release lever, most young children are not strong enough to pull the release to open the trunk.

Some quick safety tips on how to help prevent children from  becoming trapped inside a car’s trunk:

  • Always lock a vehicle’s doors and trunk – especially when parked in the driveway or near the home – and keep keys out of children’s sight and reach.
  • If a child is missing, check vehicles and trunks.
