    Note to readers: We have received comments from KidsandCars.org regarding the availability of the "Look Before You Lock" cards in both English and Spanish free at new birthing centers. Since the campaign began in July 2011, KidsandCars.org has distributed nearly 23,000 of the cards, included in New Mommy take-home packets. Contact Amber@KidsandCars.org or call 913-327-0013 regarding quantities. Also of note, S.1449, Mariah's Act, is the Federal bill to authorize appropriation of funds for highway safety programs. Two important provisions of the bill to keep children safe are for a seatbelt reminder system in all seating positions in all vehicles, and a notification system to remind a driver if a child has been left behind in a vehidle.
