(Philadelphia, PA) - KidsAndCars.org is offering CellSlip, a new safety tool to help reduce distractions while driving and prevent child hot car deaths.
CellSlip, available on the
, is a canvas pouch with a special lining that blocks all cell signal and notifications on your phone. It helps eliminate the temptation to pick up your phone while driving. Within seconds of removing the phone from the CellSlip, the user will receive all missed text messages, app notifications, and voicemail.
The CellSlip is a wonderful addition to KidsAndCars.org’s successful “Look Before You Lock” safety education program that provides parents with simple steps to ensure their child is never left inside a hot car. The CellSlip helps to emphasize the safety tip to put your cell phone or something that you need to begin your day in the back seat. This serves as a reason to open the back door and “look before you lock” the vehicle and walk away.
Already this year 23 children have died in hot cars in the US, putting us on a deadly pace for one of the worst years ever. An average of 37 children die in hot cars every year; that’s one every 9 days.
