Anti-Abandonment Child Car Seats Become Mandatory in Italy

As many know, numerous children have passed away after being left in hot cars. As an attempt to stop these reoccurring tragedies, anti-abandonment child car seats are not compulsory in Italy according to an ANSA report. The law was initially proposed about a year ago but has officially been in effect since last Thursday.

As many know, numerous children have passed away after being left in hot cars. As an attempt to stop these reoccurring tragedies, anti-abandonment child car seats are not compulsory in Italy according to an ANSA report. The law was initially proposed about a year ago but has officially been in effect since last Thursday.

These seats set off an alarm if a child is left alone in a car. They are mandatory until children reach the age of 4.  The systems alert the driver that there is a child in the seat through vibrating audio and visual signals.

There have been saddening cases including the death of a two-year-old boy from Catania who passed away after his father left him in the car and forgot about him while he was at work. If parents refuse to use the alarm systems, they can be fined up to almost $400 as well as 5 points on their licenses.

What are your thoughts on these new car seats?
