A grandfather in Florida has come up with a new way to try to prevent kids from dying in hot cars.Scott Headley, a grandfather of five, has created “Child Check Bracelets” which he says will help eliminate those deaths.
The bracelets are bright neon yellow and have red writing that reads: “STOP, LOOK & LISTEN.” It’s a visual reminder that Headley hopes will help parents remember to check the back seat. He says, “The idea is that since you’re not used to seeing this and wearing this, the feel of it and looks of it will remind you, you have precious cargo on board.”
And the best part? They’re giving the bracelets away for free! Local businesses and The Polk County Sheriff’s Office and Lakeland Police Department are also joining forces to spread the message to check the backseat.
