Carroll: How did we get to the point of so many children dying in the back seat?

For an age where so much information is available, people have gotten stupid

At least 16 children have died in hot cars in the United States so far in 2019. Last year, the number of heat-related child deaths in vehicles was the highest in recorded history.

I never thanked my parents for always removing me from their parked vehicles. I did thank them for various things over the years, but I guess I took that “hot car” thing for granted.
