Utilize Your Vehicle's Childproof Technology

Your vehicle is equipped with several standard features to ensure the safety of your passengers. Engaging your vehicle's childproof locks will prevent your younger children from opening the doors while you drive. Flipping the childproof lock switch will allow you to open your vehicle's doors from the outside, but not the inside. You can also engage window locks to prevent your backseat passengers from opening the windows, making your backseat a much safer place.

No one wants to hear the dreaded "Are we there yet?" while on a long road trip. Prevent this disastrous saying from ever leaving your passengers' lips by keeping them occupied during any drive, no matter how long or short. You can use the repurposed Flort from earlier or repurpose a shoe organizer for a creative and organized entertainment center. Pack multiple forms of entertainment - iPads, coloring books, novels, toys, or anything else you know your child enjoys to ensure your drive goes (virtually) complaint-free.
