Default The Hot Car Act of 2016 and Chrysler

Hi guys,

For decades already an average of 37 kids (and way more pets, including police k9's!) die in US every year when forgotten in hot cars. Finally on 9/15/2016 the lawmakers stepped in with the Hot Car Act of 2016 that will soon make a reminder/lifesaver mandatory in every car on US roads. The automakers saw that coming and are now trying their best to be ready and outSMART the competition. But what I reviewed so far has nothing to do with the word SMART ...

For instance Chevy (Safety features promoted at Auto Show | is proposing the "10 minutes rule" which is too ridiculous to even comment on it. But what made my jaw hit the floor was Tesla's "less than 105F" *solution*: Tesla keeps pets and kids cool with software update 8.0 . Yeah right, since it's a well-known fact that kids and pets are flourishing at 104F ...

What is going on? Did Chrysler start working on a device to comply with the new rules soon to be implemented? I just wonder whether Chrysler's New Product Dept. ever heard of the most reliable and affordable reminder: Never Forget Us!
