5th Grader Invents Device to Prevent Leaving Children in Vehicle

A follow up on the subject of a couple of recent posts about children being left inside hot vehicles…

A 5th grader Andrew Pelham from AZ has invented a low tech, easy to build device to remind parents that they have a child in the back seat.

All it is, essentially is a collection of rubber bands linked together and bound in neon duct tape. One end hooks on the back of the driver’s seat and the other end hooks onto  the driver’s side door whenever a child is in a car seat in the back. When you get where you’re going and try to get out of the car the device blocks your path reminding you that there’s a child to take out of the car.

Way to go Andrew! There’s a future safety professional!
