Former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina told CNBC on Monday that she would like to give parents more flexibility with their kids’ car seats, as well as the ability to switch out the seat belt when needed.
Fiorina made the comments while promoting her new book, What I’ve Learned from Surviving: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Quest for Meaning in Life, which has been released today.
She also addressed the issue of car seats on a broader level, arguing that parents need to be able to choose their children’s car seats based on their needs.
“I would like parents to have the ability, not just as parents, to choose what their children need and what their child’s needs are,” she said.
“Parents should be able, in fact, to decide for their children whether or not they want a car seat.
And I would like for parents to be empowered to do that.”
Fiorini, a former CEO of Hewlett Packard, was one of the most high-profile women to speak out about child safety after the death of a 7-year-old boy in a crash involving a BMW, and she also has an outspoken Twitter account.
She has a child of her own and has said that she thinks of her son when he drives.
Ferrinini is now the highest-paid woman in the world, with a net worth of $13.9 billion.
She was the second highest-profile woman in tech in 2016, with her $6.3 billion worth, according to Forbes magazine.
