In safety push, Nissan turns camera on hot car interiors

Problem: For the past 40 years, every torrid summer in Japan (which lasts an interminable 6 months), pachiko/pinball gambling parents leave their kids in the car to play “just couple of quick games.” This results in dozens of child deaths every year (and zero prosecutions)
Solution: Just put up signs in the pachiko parking lots saying, “Parent or guardian leaving children unattended in the car will be fined 1 million yen and can be subject to criminal prosecution” would help prevent the problem. Offering a bounty for people reporting unattended kids would eliminate most of the problem (since other lowlife pachiko people always need money).
