No I wouldn't. Unless it was really really hot or the child was distressed.

It astounds me that someone 12 and under cant sit in a car for a few mins alone but can have a baby a few yrs later.
Ot i know was just a crazy thought

Absolutely! I like to think about things in terms of how I would feel if the worst case happened. I wouldn't be able to live with myself if something happened to a child simply because I didn't act. The law is there for a reason, it needs to be because clearly it happens too often & ends tragically

Yep. Or at least wait around for 5 mins and if no one had returned then call the police.
Better to be safe than sorry.

Yes, this happened outside work one night. The child was SCREAMING. Before I got the chance to call the police, they were already there and once the mother returned she was questioned for a long time.

Depends. If they are in the car for longer than a minute or 2 yes. Children should never be left in a hot car with no windows down on their own.
There's been te odd occasion where I've parked directly outside bakers delight and gone in to get bread but hanging out the door too- for literally a MINUTE and watching the whole time and never in hot weather. I couldn't leave DS ever by going into an actual shop where I couldn't see him.

I agree with pp's. Depending on the situation, I would call E000, and I would at least wait with the car until owners returned. Same for pets.
I leave my kids in the car when I go to the service station. I only use certain ones, where I can pull up to the door, and that are reasonably quiet. If there is a line, I wait until the line is dealt with before I go in myself.
I also leave them when I duck into our local corner store. It has a private car park right in front of the door, and I can run in grab bread/milk, and be out in under a minute. The owner knows me, if there is no customers he will sometimes bring my stuff right to the car!
Never at a large supermarket, or on the street, and never for longer than 2-3 mins.
