Taken from today's local paper:
The California Highway Patrol (CHP) reminds motorists the summer heat can quickly create deadly conditions inside a vehicle, especially for children. . .
The national non-profit organization 4 R Kids Sake has designated August as "Purple Ribbon Month," to raise awareness and educate the public about the dangers of leaving a child unattended in or around a motor vehicle. In recognition of Purple Ribbon Month, the CHP will attach a purple ribbon to the antenna of its patrol cars.
While I fully respect and applaud the efforts of the CHP and the 4 R Kids Sake organization, this begs the question:
If someone is obtuse enough to not know that leaving their child unattended in a hot car can be deadly, how are they going to know what the purple ribbon means?
