This story first aired in September 2015.
Mikael Hellman and his colleagues at If Insurance in Stockholm, Sweden developed the Slow Down GPS, a navigation system that switches to a child's voice. They believe children's voices should be standard in all GPS navigation systems in order to get people to slow down and be more aware in child-heavy zones.
