• This photo provided by General Motors Co. shows an industry-first Rear Seat Reminder alert on the instrument panel of the 2017 GMC Acadia, a midsize SUV. The system, which is a standard feature, monitors the Acadia’s rear doors. If either one is opened and closed within 10 minutes before the vehicle is started, or if they are opened and closed while the vehicle is running, the Acadia alerts the driver to check the back seat when the vehicle is turned off. GM plans to add the system to additional vehicles throughout its lineup in 2017 and beyond. (A.J. Mueller/General Motors Co. via AP)
