3 Things You Need to Know: September 5, 2019

> By the 2025 model year, nearly all new vehicles sold in the U.S. will come with electronic alerts to remind people to not leave children behind in the back seats. So far this year 39 children have died in the U.S. after being left in cars during hot weather. A record 54 children were killed last year. 20 automakers have agreed to install reminders in an effort to stop heatstroke deaths. Vehicles would give drivers audible and visual alerts to check back seats every time they turn off the ignition.

General Motors already offers a feature on all of its 4-door vehicles starting with the 2019 model year. The system issues alerts if the rear doors were opened before the start of any trip. Hyundai has pledged to make a similar system standard on its vehicles by 2022.
