Inventors are always seeking to develop new products. Regarding the problem of deaths to both animals and children left alone in sun-baked vehicles, I propose the invention and installation of a carbon dioxide metering device designed to trigger an alarm when a certain level is reached.

Given the new marvels in electronics, the alert could even be an incessant message in several languages: "Help! Help! Child or animal left in car! Death imminent!" Such a device would represent a small cost for a great reward!
