• We've already got a pretty good system (a) warn people about the danger with public service announcements and the like (b) it's a crime, so people who know that it's a crime are very motivated not to do it. * * * What could we do to make it better? Mandate that auto manufacturers have a warning whenever you turn off the engine, "Don't leave children unattended in the vehicle." or perhaps something more complete, "If you are leaving a young child in the vehicle, make sure that the window is open and that they have water." (Note: I'm not exactly sure what best practice is here, so my example warnings are probably not safe and, so, probably not the same as the warning that SHOULD be issued.)
