AskPatty’s #HotCar Tips for Kids and Dogs: Create Reminders
Put something in the back of your car next to your child such as a briefcase, a purse, or a cell phone that is needed at your final destination. This is especially important if you’re not following your normal routine.
Today's electronic devices make it easy for you to create a calendar reminder to make sure you dropped your child off at daycare. And as a backup, ask your babysitter or childcare provider to call you if your child hasn't arrived on time.
The 2017 GMC Acadia midsize sport utility vehicle is helping to address this issue with the Rear Seat Reminder, an industry-first feature designed to remind drivers to check the back seat when they exit their vehicle under certain circumstances. Learn more about how this feature works, here at AskPatty.
