Groups Sue NHTSA Over Slow Implementation of Seat Belt Warnings Rule

Reuters reports two non-profit organizations, the Center for Auto Safety and Kids and Cars Inc., filed suit against the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), accusing the agency of being too slow to implement 2012 legislation signed by President Obama requiring that back seat passengers be warned if they do not buckle up. Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao is named as a defendant in the suit. According to the organizations, close to 1,000 rear passengers are killed every year for not wearing their seat belts. The suit “seeks to require NHTSA…to start the rulemaking process immediately and within one year implement a final rule, which was supposed to take effect by October 2015.”

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...)
