Proposed ban on leaving kids in cars

DES MOINES (KWWL) - Iowa lawmakers are considering a bill that would make it a crime to leave a child under the age of six alone in a car.

Lawmakers discussed a bill February 17 that would make leaving a young child unattended in a vehicle a simple misdemeanor with a maximum fine of $100 dollars.

According to the measure, children as young as 11 could supervise younger children.
