Purple Ribbon Month aims to lessen instances of kids being left inside hot cars

News

The month of July is being observed as Purple Ribbon Month in Kern County.

The point of the purple ribbons? To raise awareness about Kaitlyn’s Law which makes it illegal for parents to leave children under the age of 6 unattended in a car with no supervision.

The law was named for Kaitlyn Marie Russell, a 6-month-old who died in a hot van because she was left alone by a caregiver.

California ranks third in the nation for the most hot car deaths involving children — 57 deaths since 1990.
