Nissan’s Rear Door Alert System to Prevent Hot Car Deaths

Nissan Rear Door Alert System

Have you ever forgotten anything in your backseat? You may have forgotten leftovers from the restaurant you went to for dinner, or you may have left a bag of groceries in the car overnight. Hopefully, you have not ever forgotten anything more serious than that. Now, with Nissan, you won’t have to worry about forgetting anything in your backseat.

Nissan has created some new technology that will give you a warning if you leave something in the back seat of your vehicle. This can help people remember to bring in their leftovers, but it could also help them remember a pet or young child that they may have forgotten with the stress and craziness of their day.

According to Mashable, “Nissan’s rear door alert — or RDA — system was first introduced in the Nissan Pathfinder last year. The recently patented technology triggers the horn and a message display through door sensors alerting drivers to check the back seat after the car is parked if the back door was opened before the ride started.”

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has a child safety campaign as part of National Heatstroke Prevention Day. They use this campaign to educate people, and to prevent accidents where young children are left in the car.

New 2019 Nissan models can also help prevent those accidents with their new rear door alert technology. This technology will be on eight different 2019 Nissan models including the Nissan Rogue and Nissan Altima.

Safety is important to Nissan, and they have a lot of other safety technologies as well. Some of these safety features include intelligent forward collision warning, rear cross traffic alert, blind spot warning, intelligent around view monitor, intelligent cruise control, automatic emergency braking, and so many other features. You can come down and check out the Nissan safety features for yourself at Palm Springs Nissan.
