Don’t Leave Kids Alone in Cars While Shopping in Malls - Coming Soon in UAE
8 June 2020

Parents were warned by police not to leave their kids in cars with air-conditioner or engine turn on.

The Ajman Police have claimed a warning to the parents leaving their children alone in cars. As now there are regulations operating in UAE, which ban children under 10 years to enter malls and public places, many parents start leaving their kids in cars whilst shopping in malls.

According to the police media channels, due to the current restrictions on taking children under 10 years of age to shopping malls, parents leave their kids in cars with the engine running and air-conditioner switched on.

The police states “Parents must know that such an act is punishable by law as it poses risk to the child’s life”. There was a launch of an awareness campaign titled “Your responsibility”, initiated to stop such improvident actions during limitations aimed at the fight against the COVID-19.

“It is dangerous to leave young children alone inside the vehicles, especially with the high temperature outside. The hot temperature causes air conditioners in cars to emit toxic gases that could cause suffocation to the children. This could even become deadly,” claimed law enforcement agencies.
