As it turns out, before these new lift-up window buttons, children would stick their heads out of car windows sometimes accidentally pressing down on the window buttons, closing the window on their neck. They were then trapped like that, and they couldn't even see the button to figure out how to lower it. The newer lift-up button design prevents these sometimes fatal accidents. -MF
