Legacy of Nader’s “Unsafe At Any Speed” Examined

TIME reports on the impact of Ralph Nader’s “Unsafe at Any Speed” 50 years after its publication in 1965. TIME says that the book and Nader experienced harsh criticism from government officials and auto industry executives. But, by the end of 1965, “President Johnson had signed two auto-safety bills into law and established the National Traffic Safety Agency, despite the auto industry’s outspoken desire to regulate itself.” TIME goes on to state that “as the self-appointed and unpaid guardian of the interests of 204 million U.S. consumers, [Nader] has championed dozens of causes, prompted much of U.S. industry to reappraise its responsibilities and, against considerable odds, created a new climate of concern for the consumer among both politicians and businessmen.”

From the news release of the American Association for Justice.

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
