Even if it's just for a joyride around the block. Every day when I drop my dd off at her pre-school, I get irritated becasue there is a lady that will take her 4 year old in to school and sign her in (which can take anywhere between 2 to 10 minutes because they make the kids sign themselves in) and she will leaver her 2 year old in her car while it's running. She never locks it and there is never an older child or another adult in the car with her. I've expressed my concerns with her and all she did was shrug and tell me that no one was going to take off with her and I'm too paranoid. I'm sorry, but we live in a town where there are gang related cimes going on ALL the time. It's a town to be paranoid in. I think the cops need to jack her car with her kid in it just to show her how fast things can happen.
