Legislation to prevent hot car deaths with alarm technology

Legislation has been introduced that would require automakers to put backseat reminder systems in all cars as standard equipment.

Lawmakers, including Tim Ryan of Ohio, joined children’s safety advocates to propose the bipartisan HOT CARS bill on Wednesday.

The Helping Overcome Trauma for Children Alone in Rear Seats Act, also known as the HOT CARS Act of 2017, would require the Secretary of Transportation to issue a rule requiring all new passenger vehicles to be equipped with an alert system that would remind drivers about a backseat passenger after the car has been turned off.
