[HISTORY: Adopted by the Mayor and Council of the Borough of Highland Park by Ord. No. 459 (§ 3-14 of the 1987 Code). Amendments noted where applicable.]
There have been many incidents reported to other communities of death due to suffocation of children in abandoned, unattended iceboxes, refrigerators and other containers having airtight doors which, when closed, cannot be opened from the inside. These abandoned, unattended or discarded iceboxes, refrigerators and other containers are a constant menace to the health, welfare and safety of children of the Borough.
[Amended by Ord. No. 927; 2-7-1989 by Ord. No. 1178]
It shall be unlawful for any person to leave outside of any firm or dwelling or in any common area or storage area within any building or dwelling, in a place accessible to children, any abandoned, unattended or discarded icebox, refrigerator or any other container of any kind which has an airtight door or lock which may not be released for opening from the inside of the icebox, refrigerator or container, or which has an airtight snaplock thereon, without first removing the door or lid and gasket from the icebox, refrigerator or container.
