Waze Keeps Track Of Your Kids
It will probably sound surprising to the majority of people, but according to statistics, there are some drivers who forget children in their cars while going to the store or attending to other matters. While it seems completely ridiculous to some, it is a problem that needs more attention, especially in the hot weather conditions. The well-known Waze app has recently added a new feature to remind drivers to take their children with them when they leave the car.
How does this feature work?
Developers of the navigation application popular among drivers have decided to add a useful reminder feature to make sure parents don’t forget their kids in the car. Once you reach your destination, you will get a notification reminding you to take your child with you. These reminders can be personalized if you want to change the text. Currently, the feature is available in the beta version of the Waze app but, hopefully, it will soon become a part of the official application.
You can find the new feature in the settings of the app under the options to prevent auto-lock and make sure that Waze stays on top. If you decide that you don’t need to get notifications, you can disable them in the pop-up window.
If you often travel with your pets and don’t have children, these notifications can serve as reminders to remember that you have animals in your car. It is not at all uncommon for people to leave dogs in cars while going shopping, but the consequences of such actions are often tragic, especially on the hot summer days.
