Law Proposal to Prevent Forgetting Kids in Car Moves Forward

By Gldmeier @gldmeier
Yesterday the Knesset committee for the rights of children approved unanimously the law proposal by MK Orly Levi-Abuksis (Likud Beyteynu) to prevent forgetting children in cars. The law proposal will now move to the Knesset for voting.
The law proposed by Levi-Abuksis is that when a child does not show up to his or her daycare or school facility, the caregiver (metapelet) or teacher must call the parents to inform them that the child is not there.
Obviously, the idea is that if the parent had forgotten the child in the car, at that point he or she will be reminded of it and will run to the car and save the child, hopefully before it is too late.
I don't know if this will help much. It seems like so many ways it can go wrong - the teacher won't call quickly enough, the teacher will find it to be a pain and a bother to call right away considering he or she has a full class to get settled and then to have to start calling a parent or a few parents to find out where their kids are, the teacher won't be able to reach the parents by telephone, etc...
If it even saves one kid it is worth it, but it seems like there might be better solutions out there that will be more efficient and more effective. Maybe this will be more effective as an additional method alongside other methods such as sensors or other ways of reminding the parent to check the backseat of the car.
