Whether intentional or not, it turns out the little stuff you left behind could actually have an impact on your safety and others.
Especially during the day, where the sun is very hot. The heat of the sun may enter into the car. Especially for cars that are not parked outside. The small items you normally leave behind can be disastrous. The items you left may burn or cause an explosion, due to heat exposure for too long.
So what are the five items that should not be left in the car? Here's the list.
