As a technical advisor at Safe Kids Worldwide, where I work closely with families to help keep kids safe in and around cars, I dread hearing my work cell phone when it dings in the middle of the night or on a weekend.  Unfortunately, that “ding” is often an e-mail telling me that yet another child has died because of heatstroke.
