Trust Your Government To Do The Right Thing?

Trust Your Government To Do The Right Thing?

October, 2016

Dear Care For Crash Victims Community Members:
The Problem Nader has said:  “This country has far more problems than it deserves and far more solutions than it applies.”
The U.S.A. continues to face vehicle violence problems resulting in:
*  100 deaths per day – and rising
*  400 serious injuries per day
*  Losses valued by DOT at about $2 Billion per day
The U.S. has more safety technology available than ever before in history.
And yet the Obama Administration has failed for nearly 8 years – and nearly 250,000 deaths due to vehicle violence – to set a national Vision Zero Goal.  For example, Volvo has set such a goal for zero deaths in or by a new Volvo by the year 2020.   Why? 
Where is the hope and change for the better, that President Obama promised us?
Happy People

My recent article on the DOT NHTSA Revolving Door brought me the attached photo of DOT NHTSA and Auto Company Executives.  Lots of smiles as the Obama Administration comes to a close.

Some in the media have noted the Revolving Door and coziness of regulators and the “regulated”.  See

But not enough people know about the specific problems of vehicle violence and how government has failed to protect them.

Unhappy People

What percentage of the American people think that they can trust their government to do the right thing?
The Pew Poll reports: The public’s trust in the federal government continues to be at historically low levels. Only 19% of Americans today say they can trust the government in Washington to do what is right “just about always” (3%) or “most of the time” (16%).  See
Reminds me of the lyrics “The country’s in the very best of hands”  See
