Guardrails: And Now There Are 16 States
The NY Times, continuing to monitor progress in protecting American motorists, reports there are now 16 States that have taken positive guardrail safety actions. New States are NY, TX, and ND. See map of the 16 States and the 34 States currently Missing in Action at: http://www.nytimes.com/2014/10/28/business/virginia-plans-to-remove-suspect-guardrail-parts.html?mabReward=RI%3A8&action=click&pgtype=Homepage®ion=CColumn&module=Recommendation&src=rechp&WT.nav=RecEngine&_r=0
So this updates my previous blog at https://www.careforcrashvictims.com/blog-dangerousguardrails.php
Still unsatisfactory safety performance at DOT NHTSA and FHWA.
Where are the defective guardrails nationwide? How many deaths have happened at defective guardrail sites? NHTSA has data on the location of virtually all fatal crashes since 2002. That is more than 400,000 American crash deaths in the U.S.A.
The big, as yet untold, story is how much more can be done to protect Americans, when we can free DOT, FHWA, and NHTSA from corporate captivity.
