HARTFORD, Conn. – Following the death of a Ridgefield boy left unattended in a hot car, the Connecticut Department of Transportation awarded a $100,000 grant to the Connecticut Children’s Injury Prevention Center for the “Look Before You Lock” campaign.
The campaign, which launched Monday, will be a joint effort between the Department of Transportation, Connecticut Children’s Medical Center, and Yale-New Haven Children’s Hospital. It is designed to prevent children from being left in hot cars..
U.S. Senators Chris Murphy and Richard Blumenthal and Lt. Gov. Nancy Wyman attended Monday’s announcement at CCMC. “As a father of a 5-year old and a 2-year old, it’s hard for me to understand how any parent, anywhere, could leave their child in a car for any duration of time,” Murphy said.
