why is this such an outrageous concept? I am not talking about leaving a kid in a car for 20 minutes while you go shopping, which is of course a danger when it comes to overheating, but leaving a child for 30 seconds while paying for gas or dropping off a letter at a mailbox. Abductions of children by strangers are rare compared to abductions by acquaintances and relatives, and we leave our children in statistically far dangerous situations all the time without batting an eyelash, because we feel these situations "should be" safe. What is it about a child alone for a short period in a car that makes people think that the child is now at serious major danger risk of nefarious activity by predators?Answer Question
Well because most states it is a law. You can't leave children in a car unintended.

Honestly, when you look at 30 seconds of convenience versus the possible abduction of your child can you feel good about leaving them? Sure, it doesn't happen every day, but it wouldn't happen as often if people didn't leave their little ones unattended.
