Look Before You Lock. Every. Single. Time.


Leaving children unattended in a vehicle can result in serious injury or death.


The temperature inside a parked vehicle on a typical Australian summer day can be up to 30 degrees hotter than the outside temperature.


In as little as 5 minutes, the temperature in a vehicle can reach dangerous levels.


It only takes one shortcut on safety to have devastating, lifelong consequences.


Discuss your Look Before You Lock routine with every person who drives your child. This includes partners, grandparents, babysitters and friends.


Importantly, if you accidentally lock your child in a car, or you come across a child left unattended in a vehicle:

-keep calm -think clearly and act quickly -call your roadside assistance provider if you have one -call 000 immediately if you have any concerns about the child's health.
