Texas ranks #1 in the nation based on the number of child hot car deaths with 130 fatalities since 1991. Last year was the worst year in history for child hot car deaths with a total of 53 children that died nationwide. 

  

The Hot Cars Act is a federal bill would require technology in all vehicles to help prevent these unthinkable fatalities. KidsAndCars.org is working hard to make sure it is passed quickly. 

 

While education and awareness about hot car deaths is at an all-time high, so is the number of children that continue to die in hot cars. The technology exists to prevent these unthinkable tragedies. What are we waiting for?

 

Hot car deaths continue to take place because nobody believes this could happen to them. Please help us raise awareness about these predictable and preventable tragedies.
