If you’re driving with a child in your backseat, state officials and health experts want you to “look before you lock.” It’s all part of a campaign to prevent adults from leaving children in hot cars.

In July, 6 children in Connecticut were left in hot cars, including a 15-month-old in Ridgefield who died. To stop it from happening again, the Connecticut Department of Transportation is supporting the “Where’s Baby” campaign through a 0,000 grant to Connecticut Children’s Medical Center’s Injury Prevention Center. Funding for the initiative comes from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
Today in Hartford, the public awareness campaign kicked off at Connecticut Children’s Medical Center. Across the state, there will be billboards, radio, and other media advertisements during August and September.
