Our Mission Statement

KidsAndCars.org (KAC) is a 501 (c)(3) national nonprofit dedicated to preventing injuries and death to children in or around vehicles.

The organization is devoted to eliminating vehicle-related risks that were previously unrecognized through data collection, research and analysis, public education and awareness programs, policy change, product redesign and supporting families to channel their grief into positive change.

These everyday incidents include being run over, hot car deaths, carbon monoxide poisoning, car theft with children/animals inside, falls, knocking cars into gear, drowning inside a vehicle, underage drivers, power window strangulation, trunk entrapment, etc.
