    Can’t a car seat be made to alert the parent a child is in it when they leave the car. when they turn off the car and take the keys. Then so many children’s lives would be saved from dying from heat related deaths. Make it part of the theft alarm system. If a car seat is in the car a alram goes off when you get out, with or with a child in it. Until the parent undoes the seat belt and shuts off the alarm. Please come up with something.
