Automakers and Keyless Entry Cars
There have been numerous consumer complaints about how easy it is to leave a keyless car running, yet even after at least 13 known deaths from Carbon Monoxide poisoning linked to keyless ignitions since 2009, no changes have been made to this feature. Automakers have put systems in place to turn off lights if the owner forgets to turn them off, similarly there should be a system in place to turn off the car if the owner forgets to turn the car off.
The two largest U.S. Automakers, Ford and GM have openly recognized the dangerous consequences associated with Keyless Fobs, yet they fail to implement necessary safeguards in the affected vehicles. Other automakers have implemented these safeguards without significant cost or effort. The convenience of using a Keyless Fob has produced many deadly consequences. There needs to be adequate safeguards in place.
Keyless Fobs were first introduced into the market place approximately ten years ago. They are becoming increasingly more popular and a common feature in many modern cars. However, the automakers created the Keyless Fobs without instituting adequate safeguards, warnings, or other safety features. The vehicles with the feature pose a safety hazard. The vehicles engines can remain running, even when the Fob has been removed from the car. There is no automatic Shut off system.
