Not at a petrol station, yes if it was in a supermarket car park and I'd hung around for a few minutes and no parent had shown up.
I'd call the police and also not hesitate to smash a window if the child was distressed or if the windows were up.

Yes i would call if i waited around and the parents didnt return after 5 mins. If the child was distressed or it was hot id call immediately. I cant believe anyone would keave their child anywhere they could not see them!

The baby would have been about 2 months at most she said it was asleep when she left!?!? Security made her wait for police, don't know what happened after that.
We've done the same thing with dogs left in a car on a very hot day

Petrol stations are definitely the exception.
The forecourt is monitored by shop staff quite strictly, if a car was idle for too long they would check it out I'm sure...
I've seen them do it, a car parked, filled up with gas and the owner left his toddler in there while he went to get McDonalds from the attached McDonalds, he got tied up there waiting for fries or something and the staff came out to the car, police arrived to break into the car just as the father came out with his Maccas (we're in QLD, there's no mucking around with kids in hot cars), he looked horrified, but I was really glad they were proactive about it, the police spoke to him and I'm pretty sure that was that.

There are so may variables to give an exact answer.
But, off the top of my head and without actually being in this position, I *think* I would wait 5 minutes to watch to see if anyone comes back and if they don't, then yes I would.

depends on time and place and other factors (such as older siblings in the car too)

Maybe that's how to get the police to come, tell them there's a kid in the car and then when they arrive say "sorry, I lied, but can you please go next door because there is a woman being attacked, cheers, thanks"
(so glad I moved away from that street!!!!!)
