Ohio Man on Crusade to Rid Highways of X-Lite Guardrails

The Cincinnati Enquirer reports that Ohio man Stephen Eimers is “on a cross-country crusade to rid the roads of” the X-Lite guardrail, which he says is “dangerous.” His daughter was killed “when her vehicle struck a guardrail end in Tennessee.” The piece examines how the X-Lite became the preferred guardrail used on highways, which it says was through “complex testing, a half-billion dollar lawsuit and the desire by states to have competitive bidding.” Part of this, the piece indicates, also required the Federal Highway Administration to provide a letter that the guardrail “passed required crash tests.” However, the Enquirer also says the letter FHWA produces is just “guidance,” with the agency insisting “it’s the state’s responsibility to make that choice, despite the fact it distributes $40 billion in taxpayer money each year to pay for 80 to 90 percent of all highway projects.”

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...)
