    Yeah I think a mod can. You might just need to stipulate which options you'd like them to list :-)

    Perhaps:

    Yes, Absolutely I'd call the cops without thinking twice
    Yes, but only after assessing the situation and perhaps waiting 60-90 seconds for parents to appear
    No, but would hover to let the parent know that I notice when they returned
    No, would continue on my merry way. It's none of my business.


    ???? Just a thought LOL. This issue isn't exactly a yes/no response. I just thought that given the inflammatory nature of topics like these, people might be more likely to respond if they could do so annonymously

    I saw a little girl standing on her own on the streets, she would have been around 4-5 years old. I parked my car on the opposite side of the road and kept an eye on her. I saw her dad about 2 minutes later racing down the street, clearly looking worried/distressed and I went on my merry way.

    I would probably do the same if I saw a child in a car. Unless it was a hot day, that is police worthy.

    Outside a shop i would wait a few mins to see if a parent came back before calling the cops. If it was outside a gambling/drinking venue, or a big car park not in eyesight if any shops, I would prob be inclined to ring sooner. Or if it was hot and I believed the kid/s were in danger I'd call sooner.

    But under 'normal' circumstances, like outside a corner shop or news agency I'd definitely wait for a parent for a bit first.

    I would watch the situation but...

    If there were signs of distress I would act, likewise if the conditions were dangerous.

    Just read the pp about returning the trolley - that's a great option too. I always try to make sure I park near the trolley bay but you can't always get a park RIGHT next to it. I have to admit, I stress out about someone telling me I'm being negligent by walking 4-5 spaces left or right.

    I left my 20 month in the car the other day for about 2 minutes. She fell asleep as I pulled into Coles car park. I needed nappies and formula.
