STAGGERING STATISTICS

KIDS ‘N CARSä is developing a national database to evaluate the circumstances and consequences of leaving children unattended in or around motor vehicles.*   Currently no Federal or State agency is collecting information related to deaths and injuries that occur as non-traffic incidents on public or private property. 

Here are our current statistics.*

YEAR INCIDENTS VICTIMS DEATHS
2002 288 394 91
2001 374 494 102
2000 302 389 77
1999 218 300 65
1998 154 214 71
1997 114 147 39

*These data vastly underestimate the true magnitude of this public safety issue.
