A PSA to Avoid Tragedy – Kids in Hot Cars

November 2, 2016 • Continue Reading »

Constant driver distractions can result in tragedy. In this year alone, 39 children have perished in hot vehicles across the United States. Seven of those deaths occurred in Texas. In most of those cases, the young passenger was forgotten by the driver.

Houston TranStar’s “Have A Strategy to Avoid Tragedy” PSA reveals a simple, yet effective technique to help drivers avoid leaving young children in vehicles whose interiors quickly heat to deadly levels.

Please share it with anyone who might benefit from this important message.
Thank you.

Remodeling will begin after the holidays, and renovations are also planned for the 304,000-square-foot shopping center at West Bellfort and Fondren roads.
