Italy introduces obligatory alarm system to stop child hot car deaths

Rome: An Italian law seeking to prevent the death from heatstroke of children forgotten in car seats entered into force on Thursday. In Italy, and elsewhere in the world, there have been cases of children dying inside locked vehicles, usually after their one of their parents forgot about them.
Starting from November 7, car seats for children under four will have to have a warning system that will kick into action if the child is abandoned in the car.
For example, a parent who walks away from their vehicle, leaving their child on the child seat, will get an alarm call via their mobile phone. (DPA)
