NY Times Video Gives Voice to Victims of GM Crashes

NY Times Video Gives Voice to Victims of GM Crashes

June, 2014

Dear Care for Crash Victims Community Members:

Please see this brief video on consequences of crash deaths and serious injuries.http://www.nytimes.com/video/business/100000002948468/families-of-gm-victims-speak-out.html?action=click&contentCollection=Business%20Day&module=RelatedCoverage&region=Marginalia&pgtype=article

Recognize that this is just a glimpse of tragedies that have been going on for more than a century.

Under Joan Claybrook, I had the privilege to participate in a small way in research on the effects on families of crash deaths and serious injuries in the late 1970s.  That work was brought to an end under President Reagan’s anti regulatory programs that tried to kill airbags and did cripple NHTSA by cutting its staff by 33%.  The reduction of NHTSA staff by 300 workers in the 1982 period has not been restored to this day more than 30 years and more than 1 million American crash deaths later.   Seehttps://www.careforcrashvictims.com/effects-on-families.php

And see attached statistics that document crash deaths by Year, State, and Failures to Transport to any facility for emergency medical treatment.  
We can and must do better than this.  But President Obama and political leaders must feel more pressure from crash victims for us all to do better at ending the nearly 100 crash deaths and hundreds more serious injuries occurring each day in America today.
