Group Calls on NHTSA to Update Crash Test Rating

Detroit News reports the Alliance for Automotive Innovation, which represents leading US automakers, is calling on the federal government to “update crash test ratings to include modern safety technologies for the first time since 2011, the group said Tuesday.” Many have argued that the New Car Assessment Program has “become less effective as the industry has outpaced regulators in safety technology and become close to meaningless for consumers, with the majority of 2020 model vehicles receiving 5-star ratings and the rest receiving 4 stars.” Technology such as “forward collision warnings, automatic emergency braking, pedestrian automatic emergency braking, lane departure warnings, and assistance technology for staying within lanes, and automatic high beam headlamps should all be evaluated by regulators, the group said.” NHTSA has “said it plans to update the program to include similar technology and announced earlier this year, shortly before President Joe Biden took office, that it was seeking public comment on the proposed changes.”

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...)
