There has been a lot of press about leaving your child in the car, especially in Florida, where parked cars get unbearably HOT!
There has been a reported twenty automakers, representing 98% of new vehicles sold in the U.S., who have agreed to electronic reminders for people to check back seats so they don’t leave children behind. According to ABC Action News, Vehicles would give drivers audible and visual alerts to check back seats every time they turn off the ignition. Automakers say the voluntary agreement will get the alerts installed faster than a government regulation, which takes four to eight years.
This is a great idea and think it should’ve been in cars WAY before Bluetooth and back up cameras but this a smart idea for the new cars.
