When You See The SHOCKING Reason Why This Ohio Politician Made Breaking Into Cars Legal You’ll Be Stunned!

As the summer sun heats up you load the family car with pool toys, picnic baskets, and your pet, but there’s also a huge risk looming in the humid air: leaving your four-legged friend unattended in the car.

With dozens of cases of pets dying due to heat exhaustion in the car, Ohio Governor decided to take action! He signed a bill into law that protects a person who breaks into a hot car to save a minor or pet from the heat.

In Ohio, it’s completely legal for people to force their way into a locked vehicle if police are unable to come to the rescue in time.

Police and lawmakers say the person must first dial 9-1-1 and check to see if the door is locked BEFORE breaking into the vehicle.

That one-minute errand you have to run could become deadly for your pet if it takes even just a little longer than you expect.

On a 78-degree day, the temperature inside a car can soar well over 100 degrees even after a few minutes. On a 90-degree day, the inside of your car can reach 160 degrees in just 10 minutes, according to PETA.

The animal rights organization urges people to take down a car’s make, model, and license plate number so owners can be paged at the building you’re closest to. If you don’t see them arrive within a few minutes calling 9-1-1 isn’t a crazy idea–it could save their pets lives!
