Senate Passes Bill Regarding Power Windows; Safety Groups Urge Continued Focus on Issue

Several auto safety groups, such as the National Center for Auto Safety and Kids in Cars, are attempting to draw attention to the issue of power window safety. The media attention, including a story posted today on in Philadelphia, follows a bill passed in the Senate last week that mandates that the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration begin tracking power window injuries and work toward legislation that requires auto manufacturers to install safety switches in the windows.

According to the article, the safety switches would be harder for children to hit by accident and would force the windows to stop moving automatically when something blocks their way.
