We, the people of the United States, petition the United States government to pass a law that will require all car makers to install a Child Sensor Alert Device in all newly manufactured vehicles. Each year approximately 37 children, between the ages of 0-4 years, die of hyperthermia (heat stroke) after being left unattended in cars. Over 50% of these die after a parent or guardian drives to their destination and forgets the child is in the car with them, leaving them behind to endure a death no child should endure. Technology currently exists that could save the lives of hundreds of children. Petition legislators to support a bill which would require the mandatory installation of child sensor alert technology in all new cars.
We the undersigned, Each year approximately 37 young children, babies and toddlers, die of hyperthermia (heat stroke) after being left unattended in hot cars. Technology exists that would sense the child left behind in the car and set off an alert either on the drivers keychain or via a car alarm, or both. Car makers are currently unwilling to take the necessary steps to utilize this technology, technology that could save the lives of hundreds of children. This should be unacceptable. We demand that a Federal law be passed requiring car makers to install child sensor alert devices in all newly manufactured vehicles. No more children need to die in this tragic manner. Thank you for your time and consideration of this very important topic.
Keep up the great work. Look what you've accomplished!
