One hopeful coda to the tragedy of those New Jersey boys who were found dead in the trunk of an older-model Toyota: Such deaths are less common than they used to be. Starting in 2002, Congress required new cars to have release latches inside the trunk. Inexpensive, glow-in-dark latches can be installed on older cars, too. Consult the Web site www.kidsandcars.org.
