It may sound weird, but the reason is pretty simple. Parents believe any other person can leave a child in a car but not them. Only monsters are capable of doing this! Right? -  Wrong!

Our point is to make people think about the possible danger until it’s too late. It is a mistake to think that bad things can happen to others but not to us. It is always better to prevent a tragedy rather than to deal with its consequences, especially when it comes to safety and happiness of our children.
