  It's been a brutal summer in many ways, but ten children dying from heatstroke in the back of cars in just 20 days was particularly brutal.

  At the last count, 35 kids died so far this summer.

  In 2018 alone, the death toll was 53 children.

  According to the advocacy group KidsandCars.org, 889 children in total died in hot cars from 1990 to 2018.

  Now in 2019, that number has risen over 1,000 and we still have a few weeks of summer left.

  This is a serious issue we've covered before, and finally, the two trade groups representing Toyota, Ford, General Motors, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, and others, have committed to making rear-seat reminder technology standard by 2025.
