Over the years we’ve seen several tragic news headlines to do with children being left in cars.

In fact it’s quite common. According to kidsandcars.org 38 children a year die as a result of being left in hot cars.

Currently, the law is clear that parents are responsible for their children’s safety and with that comes the idea that children should never be left alone in any potentially dangerous situations.

Yet even the best of parents have been part of the shocking death statistics relating to children who’ve been left alone in cars.

Two dads from Florida, USA, have created a monitoring device that aims to curb the problem and remind parents not to leave their kids in the car.

Sense-A-Life is a device that will immediately alert a driver that has left their child in the car through a phone application and speakers, connected via Bluetooth.

The device uses two sensors to send out signals: one on the driver’s seat and another on the child’s seat. When a parent or guardian leaves the car without their child/children a warning is sent to their phone to remind them to take the child out of the car seat. If there is no response from the mobile-user within a few minutes the same alert is then sent to the other parent or guardian.

The app is not yet available in South Africa and a Kickstarter campaign has launched in the US to make its retail price more affordable.

Keeping checking Women On Wheels for more info on the app’s release in SA.
