NY Times Editorial On Senate “Safety” Bill To Make Us All Less Safe
Dear Care for Crash Victims Community Members:
The NY Times Editorial Board warns: “Last month the House passed an appropriations bill that would put bigger trucks with overworked drivers behind the wheel on the nation’s highways. If that weren’t irresponsible enough, the Senate is now considering legislation that would allow trucking companies to hire 18-year-old drivers for interstate routes and undermine safety on roads and railroads in numerous other ways.” See
To improve safety legislation the following information was created.
* Nearly $4 Trillion in losses can be expected in the six years under this proposed legislation. More than the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. See http://www-nrd.nhtsa.dot.gov/Pubs/812013.pdf * More Americans will die and be injured in crashes in Red States than in Blue States.

Hoping this helps build a Safer America,
