A couple has created a new app to help parents from forgetting their children in the backseat of the car.
We've reported on several cases just this month where parents have accidentally left their children in a hot car.
The new app called Precious Cargo works with your car's bluetooth system. The inventors say when you turn on your car and the bluetooth is activated, the app sends you a message asking if you are traveling with precious cargo. If you answer "no" the app is deactivated until the car turns on again. If you answer "yes" the app sends you a message when you turn off your car reminding you that your child is in the backseat.
The app costs 99 cents.
