Keyless Ignitions Could Kill You



Almost all new cars have them, keyless ignitions. It’s definitely an adjustment getting used to not manually putting a key in to start and stop your engine. Now you don’t even have to take the key fob out of your pocket to open the door or start the car. But this has its problems.

One of the most common is people forgetting to turn their cars off. Pair that with how quiet modern cars are and you could leave your engine running all night simultaneously filling your garage with carbon monoxide. The New York Times has reported there’s been 28 deaths and 45 injuries since 2006 from accidents like this. And while some vehicles will alert you after your car’s been running for a while, there are no federal laws requiring that feature. Do you think there should be?
