Washington State’s criminal code is quite limited in its authorization of prosecutions insofar as it requires a showing of imminent and substantial risk of substantial bodily harm to a child or dependent person by withholding any of the basic necessities of life. This statute does not target children being left alone without adult supervision, but it also does not clearly prevent such prosecutions. RCW 9A.08.010, Washington motor vehicle law provides that it is unlawful for any person, while operating or in charge of a vehicle, to park or willfully allow such vehicle to stand upon a public highway or in a public place with its motor running, leaving a minor child or children under the age of sixteen years unattended in the vehicle. RCW 16. This “kid in car” law seems limited to truly dangerous and unlawful leaving of children in cars.
