Forgetting children in a car on a hot summer day is, sadly, not that uncommon of a way for young people to die. Hospitals give out notices to new parents alerting them to the risk. But a piece of paper is easy to, well, forget. So Waze is doing its part to reduce the number of incidents.

With Waze's new child reminder feature, you can receive a notification once you reach your destination. You can set a custom message, such as the one below.

The feature has appeared in the beta and shows up in the changelog. It's available under app settings, underneath the options to prevent auto-lock and keep Waze on top. If you find the reminder annoying, you can disable it from the shortcut in the pop-up window.

But make sure you aren't forgetting your kid before you do.
