History of Auto Safety: Progress & Pressing Needs
Dear Care for Crash Victims Community Members:
, Editor in Chief of Automotive News, notes 50 years of auto safety progress since publication of “Unsafe At Any Speed” by Ralph Nader.
“This industry can take pride in its accomplishments over the years. Despite that, it still needs outsiders to push for higher safety standards and greater compliance with existing rules.
Until there are no auto-related deaths or injuries, one could say that the work is not done.” See
Auto safety history continues to be of life or death or disability importance to all Americans. On an average day Americans suffer nearly 100 crash deaths, 400 serious crash injuries, and estimated losses of $2 Billion.
We can, and must, do better protecting Americans from crash injuries.
