It’s sad that this even has to be created!
GMC is adding a “Rear Seat Reminder” as a standard feature to its 2017 Acadia SUV, the company announced on Monday. The system appears to be an industry first..”It was designed in response to the tremendous amount of heatstroke deaths that we see every year.”
Here’s how it works!
The GMC feature monitors the car’s rear doors and activates when it senses they are opened and closed within 10 minutes of the car starting, or while it’s running. The next time the engine is turned off, the system chimes and displays a message for the driver that reads, “Rear Seat Reminder, Look in Rear Seat.”
