Safety of Consumers Under Attack

February, 2015

Dear Care for Crash Victims Community Members:

Respected Safety Advocate Rosemary Shahan has asked us to help get the word out warning us all of this NJ anti-safety legislative initiative.   Warning: it may spread to other States too.

Attached is a letter from CARS and the National Association of Consumer Advocates, opposing legislation now pending in New Jersey — backed by car dealers — that would for the first time allow dealers to sell unsafe, recalled used cars to consumers, without ensuring that the cars are safe prior to delivery, if they merely provide “disclosure” — shifting liability onto their victims. The Assembly bill passed 68-0 before members of the legislature realized the implications. The Senate companion bill has not yet been heard.  Now there is growing awareness about how harmful they would be. But it remains to be seen if they can be stopped, before they go to Gov. Christie’s desk. If they pass out of the legislature, he would likely sign them into law.”

Please help get the word out because it may spread to other States too.
