Every year, car power windows tragically strangle children playing inside a parked car, in devastating incidents.These avoidable tragedies demand immediate attention and action. Thankfully, SmartClose® technology stands as a beacon of hope in this regard.

Advocating for Legislative Support

Title IV of S. 1072 presents a vital chance to reduce deaths caused by dangerous car power windows. This legislation, part of the Surface Transportation Safety Act, focuses on strengthening child safety standards in vehicles.

Mobilizing Congressional Backing

Title IV of S. 1072 has garnered widespread bipartisan support, indicating a unified commitment to safeguarding our nation’s youth. Congress must promptly turn this support into concrete action by passing these crucial safety measures into law.
