Vehicular heatstroke is the leading cause of non-crash vehicle related death in the United States. Almost every 10 days a child dies from vehicular heatstroke. Within 20 minutes, on an 80-degree day, the inside of a car can reach 109 degrees and cracking a window does not help.
Since 1998, there have been at least 849 reported child deaths from heatstroke in cars. With 52 reported pediatric heatstroke deaths in 2019 and 53 reported deaths in 2018 – much higher than the 20-year average of 39 deaths - this has been the most dangerous period in the last 20 years.
