According to KidsandCars.org, “a nonprofit child safety organization dedicated to preventing injuries and death to children in or around motor vehicles,” an average of 38 children die each year from heat-related injuries after being left in a hot car.
In today’s fast paced society, life with children is incredibly busy. Sometimes, neglectful parents leave their children in the car, subjecting their child to temperatures that easily surpass 100 degrees Fahrenheit; while other parents are wonderful, loving parents who had too much on their mind and made the worst mistake of their lives.
In either situation, the safety of the child is paramount.
Well recently, Walmart and Evenflo released a new infant car seat that makes a noise after the ignition is turned off to remind parents or caregivers that a child is in the car seat. The sound is different from that of a phone or technical device so as to not create confusion.
Though it sounds as though this car seat would be incredibly expensive, it actually retails for around $150, which is comparable to other popular brands. The name of this car seat is the Evenflo Advanced Embrace with SensorSafe. Evenflo states that the tones are “activated through a smart chest clip and wireless receiver. Additionally, the receiver will also notify you if the chest clip becomes unbuckled during transit.”
Sarah McKinney, Walmart’s Director of Corporate Communications, says:
“It’s the first and only crash-tested car seat that has this type of technology embedded. Right now (on the market) it’s more attachments or accessories or mobile apps, but there’s not one that’s an actual car seat that has this technology.”
This car seat should be available for purchase in your nearest Walmart store now (3201 W Broadway Blvd in Sedalia) or at Walmart.com. If you have a little one, this could be an excellent safety accessory to add to your vehicle!
