Before the late 90s, the number was actually much lower — an average of 12 deaths per year. But Null said with the inclusion of air bags in front seat, which aren’t safe for children, and the advent of rear-facing child-seats, the numbers “took a huge stair-step up in the late 90s and have stuck there” because parents can more easily forget their children in the car.
