All to often during the hot summer months we will hear stories about parents and pet owners leaving their child or pet in a hot car with tragedy to follow.  It happens way to much and can be easily avoided.  Always check your backseat and never purposely leave your child or pet in a hot car EVER, not even if you think it's just a short while.  This upcoming weekend we're expecting record high temperatures close to 100 degrees.

Buffalo Attorney, William Mattar presents the fourth annual William Mattar “In the Heat, Check the Seat” campaign with specially designed warning decals to create awareness and possibly save a life.

“Unfortunately it’s something we hear about on the news every year. Our goal is to raise awareness and try to prevent these tragedies.”-William Mattar

On a 78-degree day, the temperature inside a parked car can rise as high as 100 and 120 degrees in only minutes, and on a 90-degree day, the interior temperature of a vehicle can reach as high as 160 degrees in less than 10 minutes.  Summer temperatures can exceed well over 90 degrees on some days as well.  A child or animal left in a car under these conditions for even minutes can lead to respiratory distress and potential death from hyperthermia.

One simple reminder decal may help prevent a tragedy. Simply go to to request your decal.
