Why can't there be a monitor placed in a vehicle that listens for crying and motion when the ignition is turned off?
flashing lights, honking horn, smartphone app, call to the PD
It could even be trained for a particular baby's crying voice. Hell, they've had voice to text software for years!!!
Police officer's have motion detectors that send a signal if the officer is motionless for so many seconds!
there's even range monitors for parents for when their child wanders beyond it's parameters!
swimming pool monitors detect breaking the water's surface.
I know society shouldn't be in this situation where it needs to rely on devices.... but, the loss of just one child's life is worth it!
