It's All There

We found an old Mustang in a farmer’s field. Still had the original tires but lights and everything had been taken off. Fired it up and drove it home. My son said ‘Mom,it doesn’t have any lights!” I replied’It certainly does. They’re in a box in the trunk!’ Totally restored it and cried when I had to sell it for health reasons. No power steering and arthritic hands don’t mix.. and that is the story of the first cat I actually bought for myself. I still miss that car but now I’m having a serious love affair with a metallic red candy apple 2010 Mustang! bHe is the most handsome guy around!!

The tragedy of children inadvertently being left in vehicles to eventually succumb to a painful death from heat stroke during the summer or exposure to cold during the winter is a continual problem. Children being strapped in their car seats and forgotten by their parents or guardians during the warm summer months and cold winters experience a painful death. The person responsible for this tragedy, the parent or guardian, feels the heartfelt pain of responsibility the rest of their lives. Although there currently is no mechanism in place to alert the driver of the vehicle of this potential danger, a simple solution is possible. Currently many newer vehicles are equipped with a warning device that signals, via a red warning light and a warning sound, that the driver has started the vehicle in motion without his/her shoulder/lap strap secured. Such a warning could be incorporated into the rear seat restraint system, as per the below example: All rear seat restraint systems incorporate the same/similar warning system electronics as the drivers system. Configure the computer to warn the driver when the engine is shut off and the driver’s side door is opened, via a warning sound and perhaps flashing the vehicle’s lights and sounding the horn, that there are one or more rear seat belts in use. The reason for utilizing the rear seat restraints for this warning system is that when a child’s seat is installed, the vehicle’s restraint belts are used to secure the child’s seat to the vehicles rear seat. The warning system need not be incorporated into the front passenger seat restraint system simply due to the fact that if there is a child strapped into the front seat, the vehicle operator would most certainly see and remove the child prior to his/her departure from the vehicle. One potential drawback from the warning system is that if there are adults strapped into the rear seats (how often does it really occur that adults strap themselves into the rear seats), then the warning system would be activated. To alleviate this issue, the warning system could be designed to incorporate a timer to activate for three to five seconds and then deactivate. This should be sufficient time to allow the vehicle operator to realize that something is amiss in the vehicle. This warning system could easily be incorporated as a safety feature in new production line vehicles and could be offered as a retrofit into older vehicles at a nominal cost to the owner. Most certainly the insurance industry would recognize this as a cost savings device. This should be easily supported logistically, as the hardware and software currently exists in some vehicles as previously stated.
