"Friday, March 18, 2016, 6:06 PM -Florida Gov. Rick Scott has passed a bill making it legal to break into a locked vehicle to save people or hot or dogs that appear to be in distress.

The bill went into effect Tuesday, making Florida the seventeenth U.S. state that prohibits keeping animals in hot, unattended cars.

Good Samaritans will not be charged for breaking a vehicle to save a person or animal if they have:

Checked to make sure the vehicle is actually locked

Have a reasonable belief that entering into the vehicle is necessary because the victim is in imminent danger

Contacted 911 or a law enforcement official before or immediately after breaking into the vehicle

Used only the necessary amount of force to break in

Remained with the victim until first-responders arrive

In Canada, people who leave animals unattended in a car in a manner that risks their health and safety could be charged under a provincial SPCA act and under the Criminal Code of Canada.

Penalties include possible jail time, a lifetime ban against owning animals and up to $60,000 in fines."

YeeHawwww to grab your line, I would to not even blink my eyes before using my elbow at full force against the glass as in the case of a dog, knocking on the glass would produce a reaction at least… If that fails, I will not fail, NEVER! Then I would take my punishment if any in pride, knowing I at least did what I could. :flower:
