Consumer Reports Puts Your Safety First

Dear Care for Crash Victims Community Members:

Legal Reader has kindly published an article that I submitted pro bono on this life saving initiative by Consumer Reports.


Having worked on the life saving technology of Automatic Crash Notification (ACN) since the early 1990s it is gratifying to see Consumer Reports launch this initiative.

In response to Consumer Reports’ call for public support I wrote this article that lays out some of the history of the enormous number of tragedies since 1982 that now exceed the number of lives lost in all U. S. Wars.

I document what NHTSA knew, when they knew it, as NHTSA counted more than 1,600,000 fatalities since 1982.

Please help Consumer Reports succeed in this life saving effort to get NHTSA to promulgate an ACN Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard.
