I stopped in my local quickie mart this evening to pick up some eggs. I was the first in a line of about 5 people. As I was leaving, a man came in and held the door open for me.
As I went to my car, I saw the car next to me running, doors not locked and a toddler in the back seat. I couldn't believe that someone would leave their child in the back seat of a running car with the door unlocked.
To be honest with you, I wanted to call the police and give them the plate # of the car. What I did do, was back out slowly and keep an eye in my rear view mirror until that "parent" returned to the car.
I am still thinking that I made the wrong decision. I should have called someone. I would NEVER leave my child alone in the car especially with the car running and the doors unlocked.
Just to let you all know, when I got in my car, I noticed the toddler in the car with no adult or sibling, saw the car was running then looked at the locks. The car was parked right next to mine.
