TO THE EDITOR:
Regarding "Automakers to equip most U.S. vehicles with rear-seat occupant warnings" (autonews.com, Sept. 4): What is good about taking up to five years to install rear-seat monitoring devices? It should be done by the end of 2020 — at the latest. The technology exists NOW and should be ready to add to the assembly lines more quickly than up to five years! Children do not take up to five years to die in an overheated car.
Automotive News should also be writing an editorial pushing for quicker action. Five years? Speed it up. Please.
