NEW YORK (WHDH) — Drivers of keyless cars may want to be a little more cautious.
At least 28 people have died from carbon monoxide poisoning as a result of drivers who forgot to turn off the ignition in their keyless cars, the New York Times reported.
A class-action lawsuit linked to carbon monoxide deaths and keyless cars was dismissed by a New York judge in 2016.
The Society of Automotive Engineers has called for automakers to install safety features, like beeps, to warn drivers if their vehicles are still running.
