Photo:MK meets Lakewood inventor of Warning Device to Prevent Child Car Deaths

New requirements aimed at ending the epidemic of small children forgotten and left to die in cars, United Torah Judaism Knesset member Uri Maklev, who heads the Science and Technology committee in the Knesset met with a Lakewood resident who invented technology that can help prevent toddler car deaths. The committee accepted several recommendations aimed at preventing the deaths of children forgotten in overheated cars, following a spate of such cases.
One of the proposals is a requirement for all car seats to be fitted with standardized technology that would alert parents should they forget to take their children out of the car. The requirement will be phased in over the next three years in Israel. In addition, Kindergartens across Israel will also introduce a new system for the new school year, whereby teachers and parents will have to notify one another if a child is absent without explanation.

    why dont you name this Lakewood resident so we can show how proud we are of him? For every corrupt, selfish person that we constantly complain about ,there are 10 exceptional, caring people that are busy trying to make our world a better place to live.

    2. Its a real sad situation that we have now a device to remind us not to forget our most precious assets in a vehicle. Waiting for the day for a device not to forget our wallets and pocket books. Hashem yerachem

  2. The Gemara in Bava Basra sais that Ima Lo Minashya Bro A mother doesn't forget her child.

    This situation of forgetting a child is not a natural neglect which one forgets. this is a Mikreh and a total Yad Hashem. The Chazoko is that parents DON'T forget their children.

    1. This can happen to anybody. In fact it happens much more but it is kept quiet. It can happen in the winter when the child has a good chance to survives.
      the bottom line I look before your lock. And do anything in your ability that this shouldn't happened. Set reminders and install the device.
