RIDGEFIELD, Conn. -- Lindsey Rogers-Seitz of Ridgefield, whose son died after he was forgotten in a hot car in July, is pushing for car safety regulations and laws to prevent such deaths in the future.

She took her message on Tuesday to the "Today" show and is also featured in an interview with Time magazine.

Ben's death has been ruled a homicide, but no charges have been filed. His father forgot to drop him off at day care, and the 15-month-old was left in the backseat of a car all day.
