Parents leaving behind kids strapped into their car seats, often with fatal results, happens all too often.
Now, one nation is doing something to hopefully prevent that from ever occurring again.
After a recent death, Italy is now requiring alarms that emit audio and visual alerts when a child is left behind, TV station WKYC reports. Parents of children under the age of 4 who don't use them face a fine equivalent to $360. They'll also lose points on their driver's license.
Here in the U.S., 39 children, on average, die each year from heatstroke after being left in cars, according to the National Safety Council. Almost a third of all vehicle heatstroke deaths involve children under the age of 1.
Texas, by far, has had the most vehicle heatstroke deaths, with 118 since 1998. Florida is next, with 88.
