Reducing Deaths with Automatic Wireless Transmission of URGENCY Injury Probability Ratings from Crashes to EMS – 2003
The Erased History: The 1991 Mystery of a Fatal Airbag Crash Began New Efforts To Improve Emergency Medical Care
With that insight we began NHTSA efforts to educate the EMS community nationwide about using information from the crash scene to detect internal injuries. At the time Dr. Ricardo Martinez, an Emergency Physician, was the NHTSA Administrator. We produced and published early warnings for the emergency medical care community. See
Subsequently in the 1990s we knew we needed to do better – and that we could do better with information technologies – to improve Emergency Medical Care decisions in triage, transport and treatment.
ADAMS We also worked on how notification of a crash, its location, and severity could be used to improve care by instantly calculating distances from Trauma Centers, Hospitals, Fire rescue teams and air medical resources. The goal was to be able to get seriously injured people to definitive emergency medical care facilities and surgery within the “Golden Hour.” To accomplish this, by 2003 we had organized a national Atlas and Database of Air Medical Resources (ADAMS). See
The Atlas and Database of Air Medical Services (ADAMS) 2003
In the 2002 CIREN Report, the NHTSA Overview chapter summarized the work on Improving Emergency Medical Care using modern technologies of ACN, URGENCY software, and the Atlas and Database of Air Medical Services (ADAMS) for alerting Air Medical Systems. See pp. 1-9, and pp. 37-45 at
Today, NHTSA researchers know that NHTSA still has not done its job of setting standards for ACN & URGENCY technologies to save lives. Recent research findings continue to confirm results found more than a decade ago.
“We are at the front end of the opportunities associated with our OnStarbusiness”, said Stevens. “The 4G network has been a great addition to the portfolio, with significant data monetization opportunities on the horizon.”
The finance executive is referring to the 4G LTE network GM rolled out across nearly all vehicles in its portfolio starting in 2015. The connection enables an in-vehicle Wi-Fi hotspot, with GM being the world’s first full-line automaker to implement the feature/technology across its entire vehicle portfolio, representing the broadest and quickest deployment of the technology in history. Other automaker are still playing catch-up in the area.
Vehicles connected to OnStar 4G run on the AT&T network, and GM receives a cut of the revenue associated with data plans it sells on behalf of AT&T. GM appears to be looking to take the connection a step further by monetizing the data pipe even more, perhaps (or perhaps not) with relevant in-vehicle advertising.
“Taken together, aftersales, GM Financial, and OnStar, we believe we have a billion and a half dollar profit growth opportunity with these businesses over the next several years”, concluded Stevens.”
Legal Reader has published an article that I submitted pro bono on the litigation seeking justice for the death of Remi Walden six years ago , just decided by the Georgia Supreme Court.
The article briefly describes the tragedy followed by efforts of the Center for Auto Safety and a team of Trial Lawyers led by James E. Butler, Jr. to produce Justice for the family and end such vehicle violence for all of us.
Not until many more of us know of these tragedies and the legal and political battles won and battles lost will enough of us become active to end such vehicle violence.
An educational and inspirational talk at La Verne University by Ralph Nader gives us the information we need to learn how we can advance our own safety and happiness through Justice. Watch it on YouTube (in 3 Parts) at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sntBXOFP7Kk
Dear Care For Crash Victims Community Members:
Legal Reader has published an article on this deadly scandal. See https://www.legalreader.com/covering-up-vw-diesel-scandal/
The article by Jack Ewing of the NY Times reports on deceptively rigged research funded by auto companies that forced monkeys to breathe automotive diesel exhaust gases. The testing was rigged so that exhaust gases during the test were controlled to much lower levels than produced during road use.
In the article I include a 1975 EPA Report showing an oil Industry effort to similarly deceive with “scientific” experiments forcing monkeys to breathe nitrogen oxide pollutants.
Since 1975 Americans have been forced to breathe more automotive pollutants than they would have if the laws had been properly complied with. The result is more early deaths due to air pollutants.
Under just the first year of the Trump Administration an estimated 55,000 people have suffered early deaths due to automotive air pollutants.
What government and industry do and don’t do can make important differences to the safety of the public.

Kleptocrats are now running government in Washington. What are we the people to do to protect ourselves?
We have reached the point in history when we must ask the existential question “To be or not to be?”
MIT Professor Noam Chomsky has labeled the Republican Party “the most dangerous organization in world history”.
Legal Reader has kindly published a pro bono article I submitted on this subject. https://www.legalreader.com/republican-racketeers-violent-policies/
The NY Times’ Danny Hakim reports on the efforts of one such AG at
This is nothing new. Eric Schneiderman set himself on a collision course against Donald Trump when he first set his eyes on the questionable charitable activities of the Trump Foundation during the course of the presidential campaign.
It would only be a matter of time before one thing lead to another — as anyone familiar with Trump’s business practices would be quick to tell you.
By reaching this recent “milestone”, the New York Attorney General remains one of the strongest of lone voices in the wilderness.
Thank you, Mr. Schneiderman. Well done, Sir.
Anything anyone can do to divest our country from the horrid menace in the White House is welcome. In addition, a national movement to vote against any politician running as a Republican should begin now. The Republican Party is a bottom feeding organization. Our democracy is threatened as never before by self serving Republican politicians who are putting their personal financial interests ahead of their constitutional oath. It is time to wash the Republican stain from the halls of Congress.”
What will readers do?
Dear Care for Crash Victims Community Members:
At one of the darkest hours for Americans in decades, there comes a breakthrough in ways for citizens to politically fight for safety.
We, the people, now have a new organizing tool to help end vehicle violence. And it can be used to help end many types of violence too.
Legal Reader has published an article I submitted, pro bono, on this tool to empower victims to share their stories and organize for more effective advocacy.
This citizen breakthrough enables people to join forces to advance safety from many types of violence. Please read about what one crash victim, Marianne Karth, has created for us all.
