NOVI, Mich. - Keyless locks can be convenient in many ways, especially when you are juggling kids in and out of a car.
But one mom in Novi has a warning out for parents.
Cars don’t typically lock when key fobs are inside.
That’s what Katie Corbin thought when she was gassing up, leaving her one-year-old toddler, Joey, sitting in his car seat.
When the doors unexpectedly locked, she went into a panic.
“Be careful, don’t trust technology.”
Corbin pulled up to this gas station at 8 Mile and Haggerty in Northville Tuesday afternoon with both key fobs in the car, one in the diaper bag, one in a purse.
She parked in the shade because it was over 90 degrees, but with the car off, it could get too hot for Joey.
“I thought that having a keyless entry car meant that I could leave my key in my car while I went and pumped gas,” she said. “That was not the case.”
