NHTSA Rejects Federal Safety Standard Petition, Favors Voluntary Agreement From Automakers

Forbes contributor Christopher Jensen writes that a filing in the Federal Register indicates there will not be “any federal safety standard” to inform consumers of “how well automatic braking and crash avoidance systems work” or to require a recall “if they fail.” The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration announced in the filing that it has rejected the petition to create a new safety standard because doing so “would have taken between three and seven years longer” than the voluntary agreement NHTSA has said “most automakers” will provide.

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...)
