A Sydney-based father-of-two has invented a genius device to stop children bickering in the back seat of the car and preserve the sanity of parents all in one fell swoop.

Mark Abay, 42, was inspired to create the 'Backseat Carma' after his kids fighting almost caused him to crash into the car in front.

The clever tool retails at $119 and acts as a 'backseat divider' to ensure no scratching, biting or kicking occurs while in transit.

Thanks Mamamia for the writeup on the Backseat Carma!

If you’re not hearing bickering, escalating to screaming and/or physical violence, coming from the back seat of your car, how do you even know you’re a parent of more than one child?

It’s a common experience of most mums and dads as they drive their kids to school, or sports, or social events; you’re running late, thinking of a millions things, while the kids, safely buckled into the back, having nothing else to think about…so they pick fights with each other.

Which is exactly what your brain that’s about to explode with pressure needs – not.

This is precisely this scenario which inspired a desperate Sydney dad to invent a genius hack to save his sanity in the car. It’s called the Backseat Carma, and it’s essentially a divider between the kids so they can’t see or touch each other.

Safety First! Introducing The Backseat Carma: A Secure Car Seat Divider

The Backseat Carma has been designed with safety in mind from day one. Our team has sought the advice of experts during the development stage to create our final product.

Following the final development we caught up with Tom Goudkamp of Stacks Goudkamp to get his advice about the risks of distracted driving.

Hi, I’m Tom Goudkamp from Stacks Goudkamp, the leading personal injury law firm in Sydney. Over my 40 years specialising in motor vehicle accident cases I’ve unfortunately seen all too many involving families. Make no mistake, any distractions in a car, be it using a mobile phone or changing the radio station can lead to accidents. However, the combination of the high stress and distraction caused by kids fighting in the car regularly leads to terrible accidents.

 It only takes a moment of turning around to shout at your children to cause an accident, not only for your family but for other road users too. So anything parents can do to prevent kids from causing distraction in the car can only be a good thing.

 Unfortunately some parents attempt to create an insecure barrier between kids by using anything from luggage bags to surf boards! In the event of an accident, these unsecured items can cause further injury to passengers. Having a secure car seat divider is a must.

The Backseat Carma creates a safe physical barrier between kids in the backseat, reducing the opportunity for children to goad each other which often leads to all-out war in the car. The design of this car seat separator does not restrict the driver’s view through the rear window and because it is secured using the rear seat belt, there is no opportunity for the Backseat Carma to move around the vehicle.

As a father myself, I only wish the Backseat Carma had been available when my children were younger. I'm certainly thinking about ordering one for my grandchildren. 

Safe travels
