Ok, that is not right. If the child is left in an unattended car, that's one thing, but just because you don't think the car is safe, it's really not your business. Especially since you have no idea what crash ratings are for every car.

For example, We have a small Ford Fiesta, that most would think isn't safe; however, it has amongst the highest crash test ratings in America.

State Law: A child may be left unattended in a car, running or not, for up to 10 minutes.
I'm curious to know why the OP felt the need to use her "sock puppet" to ask this question, and why she has not been back since to comment further.

I see a lot of people have their sarcasm meters turned off today.

Yea I would be calling the police if I saw a child in a Fiesta. If you loved your children they would be in at least a Taurus. Sorry, but why take a chance with your Snowshine. Besides my gifted child is allergic to the carpets used in Fords.

I think parent B is a trouble maker. Parent A made a decision that she was comfortable with. It was not illegal. Whether parent B agreed with it or not, it's none of her business. Then she vidoe taped it. What a nut. If parent B was REALLY concerned she would have hung around, watched the car, and maybe chatted with parent A on her way out. Instead, she videos it, than reports the parent. Trouble maker, clear as day.

Why waste your time on the "what ifs?"

If it were me, I would go and confront Person B for being a busy-body and sticking her oars into other people's business.

You see, there's my point. The Fiesta is rated as a safer car than the Taurus, by a large amount.

Now would I keep my Fiesta when I have kids? Perhaps not, but that's from a practical matter of room for everything.

But the point is that it is none of your business what kind of car I drive with kids.

Now, if a kid, especially and infant is left unattended in ANY car for ANY amount of time, they should be reported.

You call the police whenever you see a baby in a Toyota Camry or a Nissan Versa? you must have them on speed dial.

Based on his last post, he's just stirring the pot.

I wouldn't do it, but that doesn't mean it's wrong to do it, if she's taking precautions and running in and out.

Not true. I am observing a potentially unsafe situation and reporting it. This is no different from anyone else. The general "You" may not like it but that is all I am doing.

In fact I think it is actually safer to leave a child in a parked car than to put them on the highway in an unsafe car.
