PARENTS are just now realizing that their cars have a hidden feature that prevents children from getting their fingers caught in the windows.
A driver accepted tick tock to share the automatic power window tool that could help prevent accidents on the road.
David González explained that windows have a built-in feature that automatically stops rolling if the car detects an obstacle in the way.
He said: “When you roll the window all the way down on most new cars. And when someone puts it up, it just goes down again.” [if it detects an obstruction].”
To reveal the nifty feature, David sticks his own arm in the window and presses the button to roll it up.
As soon as the car detects a hand in the way, the window automatically lowers again.
He ends his video with the words: “Safety first!”
Viewers used the comments to express their astonishment at the hack.
One wrote: “Y’all say all cars have this but where was this in my family car in 2005 when my dad ripped the window on my hand?”
Another said: “This is a safety feature.”
Others were quick to reveal that their cars also had this feature, saying, “Works the same with my car’s sunroof” and “My car does it.”
This comes after another TikToker explained a hidden feature of some cars that make them perfect for summer.
Meanwhile, one motorist was furious when selfish motorists snapped up a parent-child seat at the local supermarket.
