Can you cook a pizza in a hot car?

Chef Haim Cohen of SafeKids shows us that a pizza can burn in a hot car – a stark warning for parents on the dangers of leaving children unattended

Hot car can cook pizza

As an auto accident attorney, I’ve handled far too many preventable car accident crashes and injury cases involving children.

But children can be seriously harmed in a car without a car accident ever happening. In summer, I can’t stress enough just how hot the inside of the car can get – which can be deadly if parents or caregivers leave their children unattended.

Today, I thought sharing the video below might better drive home the point, rather than simply saying that the inside of cars can heat up to dangerous levels in a short amount of time:

The video is from Safe Kids Israel. It’s part of their campaign to prevent heatstroke and to remind parents to never leave a young child alone in a car. As you can see, 30 minutes in the car is long enough to cook – let alone burn – a pizza.

As the chef says:

“The car is exactly like an oven. Check and be absolutely sure that no child is left in back – not even for a single minute!”

I’ve previously written about this subject, giving safety tips to prevent child heat stroke in cars and addressing legal issues of leaving your kids unattended in the car in Michigan, where I primarily practice law.

Every year, an average of 38 children die in hot cars from heat-related deaths after being trapped inside. More than 600 U.S. children have died when left alone in cars since 1990, according to the nonprofit safety group Kidsandcars.org.
