Crash Victim Petition Gains More Than 1 000 Signatures in Days

Dear Care for Crash Victims Community Members:

The inspirational Karth family petition for action by President Obama has gained more than 1,000 signatures in just a few days!  As we recently wrote there are millions of reasons to sign their actionable petition.

Please continue to spread the word and build the community support for safety progress.


For people who need to know more why I recommend Marianne Karth’s work please see her safety resume attached.  She, her family, and all Americans deserve her support.
Please see video of their tragic losses.  She created it to help prevent tragedies happening to all of us.  Warning:  It probably will bring tears to your eyes as it did to mine.

Center for Auto Safety NHTSA Making Us All Guinea Pigs

Dear Care for Crash Victims Community Members:

Clarence Ditlow, in an Op-Ed in U.S.A. Today warns us all:“Congress intended that standards would regulate and stimulate new safety technologies. Today’s NHTSA has abandoned the regulatory side for the stimulation side, leaving safety by the wayside. By not issuing safety standards on driverless vehicles, NHTSA creates a safety vacuum that will inevitably lead to consumers dying as unwitting guinea pigs in crashes of unproven driverless vehicles.”  See

Once again, NHTSA is conducting government of the people, by, and for Global Motors.
Remember the promise of “Hope and Change”?


Articles on Heat Vehicle Deaths

August, 2016

Dear Care for Crash Victims Community Members:

Forbes has published two excellent articles on heat that readers will appreciate for their life or death importance in this hottest month of the year.

The first is the continuing tragedy of children dying in vehicles without warnings.  See

The second is about Ford recalls in only “hot” States.

“How hot is too hot?

And when the same part is defective, why do some owners get a recall and others don’t?

Those are two questions owners may have as Ford recalls almost 830,000 vehicles – including almost 767,000 in the United States – because a door could open while the vehicle is moving.

The recall, announced by the automaker Thursday, covers only 16 states Ford considers to have “higher ambient temperatures and solar loading.”

But Ford spokeswoman Elizabeth Weigandt couldn’t say how hot was too hot or how “solar loading” was calculated.”  See

How hot are you in your State?  Are there really 34 States that are not hot enough?
Reminds me of Nader’s book “Getting Steamed to Overcome Corporatism: Build It Together to Win

Ralph Nader’s Getting Steamed will make you repeat that phrase from the movie Network: “I’m as mad as Hell, and I’m not going to take it anymore!” His compendium of corporate crime, greed, and exploitation of honest people everywhere will raise your temperature—to the boiling point.”
