Automotive Alliance Aims to Prevent Hot Car Deaths with Rear Seat Reminder

Some of the world’s top automotive manufactures are banding together to reduce the amount of child deaths caused by hot cars.

The alliance of 20 includes automakers like General Motors, Ford, Chrysler and Toyota—all promising to install rear seat reminders in their cars and trucks.

The feature will include audio and visual prompts to look in the backseat.

So far in 2019 alone, 39 kids have died in hot cars.

The goal is to have the new feature in all cars by 2025.
