Are power car windows safer?
Power windows are a convenience feature, though there are elements of passenger safety that are incorporated. Power windows can be controlled by the driver, so if a passenger opens the car window when they shouldn’t, the driver can close it. Power windows are also equipped with a window lockout switch to prevent the rear windows from being opened when children are in the back seat. There is also an anti-pinch function to prevent crushing injuries.
