3TV, CBS 5 & ABC 15: Hot Car Bill Goes Into Effect
Written by: Kimberly Ring
The Hot Car Bill took effect on Wednesday, August 9, 2017!
AHS and its Humane Legislative Coalition of Arizona partners led efforts to pass the law, which allows Good Samaritans to take action without risk of civil liability if they rescue a child or a pet from a hot car.
If you see a child or pet in a hot car and believe they are in imminent danger of physical injury or death:
Determine if the vehicle is locked.
If unlocked, open a door to enter the vehicle.
If locked, you may break the window. Do not use more force than is necessary.
Remain with the child or pet until the authorities arrive.
