Here is an excerpt of an article.
The bill -- dubbed the "Kids and Cars Act" -- also requires NHTSA to study whether to require that power windows and door panels reverse direction when they detect an obstruction, much as automated garage-door openers do. If NHTSA doesn't complete a study within the next two and a half years, it would have to send a report to Congress explaining why.
Requiring windows to automatically reverse when they hit an obstruction likely would cost automakers about $10 per window, according to the legislation, or nearly $700 million annually.
Although it is rare for power windows to kill children, it has happened.

I can understand a study of non accident related injuries. But all this about auto reversing windows?
Does anyone else think that money and resources could be spent on more important things! I mean really! When I was a kid and the window got closed on my hand, I yelled, they lowered the window! Then told me to keep my damn hands inside the car. Lesson learned. If your child was in their seat with their seat belt on, how did their head get into the window path!
