On Target: Aug. 11, 2008

The California Highway Patrol has affixed ribbons to the antennas of their patrol vehicles this month to warn the public about the dangers of leaving children unattended in cars. The purple ribbons are in memory of children who have lost their lives because they were left in a car, including 6-month-old Kaitlyn Russell, who died from hyperthermia in 2000, the CHP said. “Kaitlyn’s Law” states that anyone who leaves a child of 6 years or younger inside a vehicle without the supervision of someone at least 12 years old can be fined $100.Bay Area NewsCHPkaitlyn's lawLocal
