50th Anniversary of DOT
Dear Care for Crash Victims Community Members:
Congratulatory 50th Anniversary messages from former and the present Secretary of Transportation are at
Listen to what they say about safety – their “number 1 priority,” their “North star”, etc.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xaq6JKJ5m8g Contrast that with the reality that they devoted less than 2% of the DOT budgets to NHTSA safety – decade after decade.
Statistics on the 2 million Americans that lost their lives and the hundreds of millions of Americans injured due to motor vehicles over that period are at https://www.careforcrashvictims.com/assets/MonthlyReportforJanuary2016-Corrected.pdf
Crash victims might judge their record differently in light of the enormous number of tragedies they presided over and did not prevent.
