Child Safety in Motor Vehicles: Testimony of Janette E. Fennell, Founder, Kids and Cars

Testimony in support of the Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users, which includes a number of important child-friendly safety provisions that would move the issues I have mentioned in the right direction, and the Senate version, the Safe, Accountable, Flexible and Efficient Transportation Act of 2005, which includes a section that provides for a study of the technology available to prevent backover incidents in which pedestrians, especially children, are struck and run over because they are in the blind zone and the driver was unable to see them when backing up the vehicle.
