Attn Mods: please let this be it's own topic and don't merge with the Waze thread. I want to bring attention to this feature, it can save lives.

The question is only if it's like a bug fix for a phone. The problem might have been created by the phone itself vd"l.

According to this article (https://www.washingtonpost.com/lifestyle/magazine/fatal-distraction-forgetting-a-child-in-thebackseat-of-a-car-is-a-horrifying-mistake-is-it-a-crime/2014/06/16/8ae0fe3a-f580-11e3-a3a5-42be35962a52_story.html), it's usually  caused by a change in routine plus the perfect occurrence of terrible circumstances.

I always hear stories of people leaving kids in the car, and I think about how easily it can happen and that they aren't necessarily negligent parents. It's pretty scary.

+1.

The article says, "this feature is useful mainly during the summer".

It is more dangerous in the summer because of the heat, but is it more common in the summer?

A friend once described to me, how someone ran into the Bais Medrash, lifting his child's lifeless looking body to the air conditioner.
He by mistake left him in the car in the heat. BH Hatzalah revived the child.

I heard about that. Great idea! I think it's connected to the car seat buckle.

Anyone who uses this reminder in the app is asking for it!
they will forget their child!
1. what happens if they use it and start to get used to it.....like most people do within your last block or two of your destination where at that point you figured out how to get there you double click and swipe up. BOOM NO MORE REMINDER!!!
