From crime in our neighborhoods to dangerous driving on our highways, our focus this week will be on safety. We'll swing by D.C.'s fast-changing NoMa neighborhood to find out how residents are responding to shootings there. We'll also talk with a mother who forgot her infant son in a hot car — and now works to help other parents avoid similar tragedies. And we'll hear from a skydiving instructor who says his job is all about safety in the sky.
