Road accidents usually happen in areas prone to it, wherein there are actually signs that warn about the risk. However, accidents also happen at the most unexpected times and places. Consider the deaths of several children who simply had their heads out the vehicle window. In such incidents, who are you going to blame? Perhaps, some would hold the auto manufacturer responsible. Whereas, others may say that the parents or guardians of these children are the ones accountable. But let's go back to the real cause, and that's accidentally leaning on the switch of power windows.
Your Chevrolet might actually be also equipped with power windows, and it is true that they're sophistication makes their activation very much easy and convenient. Their Chevy window switch only needs very little effort. Power window switch come in two types, the toggle and rocker switches. The first one is pushed or pulled in order to go upwards or downwards, while the latter requires only pressing either of its ends to open or close the windows. This easiness is actually the reason why a child can be choked as he accidentally activated the vertical movement of the window.
If you don't have the means to have your windows modified with autoreverse mechanism as such with one-touch-up and remote controlled vehicle windows, it is best to never leave your kid in the vehicle alone with the keys in the ignition.
